If you're in the market for an upscale dim sum brunch, this is your spot. Pastry chef Janice Wong's 1500 sqft flagship restaurant in the National Museum of Singapore will not only serve her well-known desserts, but also savoury dishes from the book she published in 2013. Come with your family in tow and tuck into familiar dim sum dishes like liu sha baos, dumplings and even heartier mains like somen — all done with a twist. The colourful hues from the artwork decorating her walls, made by Janice and her team, are also reflected in the food, like the striking pink, green and dark purple skins on the Mini Pots (Siew Mai, $15 for three). Instead of a measly amount of shrimp roe on typical siew mai's, the ones here are generously topped with caviar. Get the XLB Tasting Platter ($20) to have a taste of all four xiao long baos available — with its strong cherry flavour, we think the Foie Gras Pork Cherry is the most impressive of the lot.
Avg price: $35 per person
