Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant @ Jalan Besar

Calvin was finally back ashore, after his offshore construction and commissioning which took the lunar phase to repeat exactly once, and you can assume that someone's having a king's ransom to give everyone a sumptuous treat. Muakaka…

Serangoon Road (taken from the sunroof)
Calvin picked us (Alison, Emilia and me) up from home and drove all the way to Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant 瑞春点心餐厅, located along Jalan Besar, via the lit up pre-festive (Deepavali) Serangoon Road.

Jalan Besar reminds me of the filming of the 1st scene in "Where the Queue Starts 4 Episode 1", where I was tasting the wanton noodles at Da Jie Chicken Feet Noodles Famous Wanton Noodles 大姐鳳爪麵 雲吞麵.

The very first thing I want to anally point out about this restaurant is the wrongly spelt ‘Tim Sum’, which should be ‘Dim Sum’, according to the Jyutping (Cantonese phonetic alphabet).

Second thing... actually there's no second thing, just get a menu and a queue number from the receptionist and get ready for delicious dim sum!

Chee Cheong Fun 豬腸粉 @ 1.80

Shanghai Xiao Long Bao 上海小籠包 (4) @ $4.00

Red Bean Paste Pancake 豆沙鍋餅 @ $4.80

Fried Dou Miao w/Garlic 蒜茸炒豆苗 @ $6.00
I like the saltiness of the pea shoots.

Char Siew Pau 叉燒包 (2) @ $1.80

Siew Mai 燒賣 (2) @ $1.80  Har Kow 蝦餃 (2) @ $2.40

Fried Prawn Dumping w/ Mayonnaise 明蝦角 (3) @ $4.20
Oops, I'd eaten one before taking the photo.

Steamed Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun 奶黃流沙包 (3) @ $3.60

The custard bun that I had before in Penang is yellow both on the outside and the inside, but this one here is white on the outside but yellow on the inside, just like the opposite of banana, resembling an angmoh who speaks Mandarin but doesn't speak English. Hahaha..... Ok, not funny.

Thanks Calvin! ^_^
