From the Burpple community

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

Yes stuck in between the Pau is a Chinese Sausage, amidst the Huge Pau with juices flowing/squirting uncontrollably. 😋

Go big or go home, they said. And big is definitely the way to go here, because big gets you a fat & fluffy bao dripping with juices. There's (half) an egg, mushrooms, Chinese waxed sausage, and chunks of chicken and pork in there. It's a little sweeter than the usual, but that's partly why I like it.

Apart from a variety of handmade baos like char siew, kong bak pau, red bean, etc, there are also interesting variations of dim sum such as the Century Egg Siew Mai ($1.80) in the background. Regular and salted egg versions also available. Tastes pretty decent, but definitely not the highlight here. Save your calories for the super big bao & more Jalan Besar eats instead.

Default choice of dim sum to tame peckish pangs from the same coffeeshop we get our kopi/teh fix.

Super juicy and flavourful minced meat filling studded with chopped bamboo shoots wrapped in a sheet of bean curd skin. Love how the skin has softened to absorb some of the savoury zhup. 😋😋

Located within quite a non-descript coffee shop but this place serves really good paus. Char Siew Pau was well-filled with sweet charsiew smothered in a thickly sweet honey sauce, with chunks of pork to chew on and a bit of savouriness within that fluffy, steamed bun that makes it so addictive. Tau Sar Pau wasn't as spectacular though; the filling was smooth without being overwhelmingly sweet but marred by the bun; no doubt still good though a little bit too thick which makes it feel a tad heavier compared to the former.

If you're too lazy to queue for Swee Choon, this little dim sum shop just opposite should be more than enough to satisfy your craving!
