When in the mood for dim sum, head to this North Bridge Road spot for their Halal-friendly selection — they're currently in the midst of their Halal certification. The homey space is simply outfitted, and offers a laidback ambience for noshing. Expect dim sum classics like plump Chicken Siew Mai ($3.90), fresh Crystal Prawn Dumplings ($4.90) and crumbly Egg Tarts ($3.90). A Burpple community favourite is the Pan Fried Chives and Beef Dumpling ($3.90), which sees the flavourful filling encased in thin and crisp deep-fried wonton skin. The Vermicelli Roll with Rendang (from $6.90, option of beef, lamb or chicken) is a fusion dish that works, thanks to its silky smooth cheong fun skin. If you're looking to fill up more, try the hearty Congee with Beef and Poached Egg ($8.90) or go for a bowl of Wonton Noodle Soup ($6.90) — the springy noodles come topped generously with prawn dumplings. Don't hold back when dipping the dim sum into the spicy and yummy homemade chilli, and be sure to end your meal with their Molten Salted Egg Custard Bun ($4.90 for three buns) — it certainly oozes, so have your napkins ready!
Avg Price: $20 per person
