Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant
Swee Choon stands out from most dim sum joints in Singapore, as it’s one of the few places that opens until 6am. As dim sum is traditionally eaten for breakfast or brunch, the restaurant is a popular spot for supper crowds and clubbers looking to refuel after a night out. A full range of steamed, baked and fried dim sum are available, mostly of which cost around S$2.
Standouts include char siew bao (BBQ pork buns), steamed salted egg yolk custard bun, lotus paste bun, and har kow (shrimp dumplings). Swee Choon also serves noodles and rice dishes if you’re looking for something more filling, but its extensive dim sum offerings are not to be missed.
- Opening Hours: Wednesday–Mondays from 11am to 2.30pm and from 6pm to 6am (closed on Tuesdays)
