Late night supper usually means calorific ice cream treats for the boy and I. But one
day night, we decided to go savoury at Swee Choon Dim Sum Restaurant instead. Opened from 6pm to the next morning, the whole place was packed. Really packed with young and old alike. An eye-opener for me; I didn’t know so many people get hungry so late at night, haha. We even had to get a queue number and waited outside for about 20 mins!
Swee Choon made me feel like I was back in Hong Kong for a moment.. Service was no-nonsense, food was delivered swiftly to our table, and the atmosphere loud and in your face. We ordered the customary dim sum suspects: har kow ($2.20+), chee cheong fan ($1.80+), carrot cake ($1.80+), big meat pau ($1.60+), salted egg yolk custard bun ($3.30+) etc etc.. Highlight had to be the signature mee suah kueh, a deep-fried vermicelli cake that’s about a million times yummier than carrot cake! Prawn-banana fritters ($2.80+) and red bean paste pancake ($4.80+) were also good; hard to go wrong with fried stuff aye? The only thing I didn’t like was a glutinous sesame pumpkin cake ($1.80+) that’s tasteless and chewy, ick.
