Set within a nondescript coffeeshop diagonally across from Swee Choon, this is a hidden gem serving handmade dim sum that, according to Burpple Tastemaker Acamas Teo, easily rivals Swee Choon and 126. Go with Burpple Tastemaker Michelle Kayla Tay's suggestion of the Super Big Bao ($3.20). The humongous fluffy bun holds together a generous combination of juicy fillings that include half an egg, mushrooms, Chinese waxed sausage, and chunks of chicken and pork. Pair this with the Century Egg Shrimp Siew Mai ($1.80) and the Tofu Bamboo ($1.70), which sees minced meat and bamboo shoot wrapped within a sheet of beancurd skin. The food selection is pretty minimal so save this spot for a teatime outing. Don't forget to order a stellar cup of kopi or teh while you're here — it's seriously good.
Avg price: $5 per person
