I took bus 65 from the office and alighted at a bus stop in Little India and walk through the small lane over to Jalan Besar side (desker road).
I dropped by the Uncle's store for a while before walking over to Swee Choon to meet Mum. There was already a long queue outside the shop. I was wondering is it really that nice? Because the best dimsum I had especially the custard bun is at Taste Paradise at Ion Orchard!
Mum let me decide what dimsum to order - I chose custard bun (liushabao) and yam paste (orh ni) and let her decide the rest.
|Wide selection of dim sum|
|They have cooked food too|
Here are the food which we ordered:
|Lime Juice with Sour Plum|
|Portugese Egg Tarts|
|Century Egg Lean Meat Porridge|
|Hot & Sour Soup|
|Fried vermicelli cake|
|Liu Sha Bao|
|Fried Prawn Wanton|
The food was not bad overall, but I feel that the fried vermicelli cake was overrated. :( It doesn't taste as nice as people said it. The custard bun was ok, not the best but still acceptable for me. The congee was so-so and so was the hot & sour soup. The best I liked was the orh-ni (yam paste), not too sweet and I don't get sick of eating it. The taste is just nice to my liking.
I feel Swee Choon is a little overrated but the price is still acceptable. $32.10 for the 2 of us, slightly cheaper than restaurant.
