Neighbourhood ice cream shop in 210 Toa Payoh Lorong 8 that really offers variety of interesting flavours!
😍 The place only can accommodate less than 10 people, but it is really meant for takeaway. Affordable and good ice cream, yohh! 💕

It's quite disappointing as the food is a letdown. In their #alldaybreakfast Papa's breakfast, the hashbrown looked and tastes undercooked and the Italian sausage had very minimal flavour. The crab meat in the crab balls tasted too fishy and I had to dip it in tomato sauce to eat it. On the bright side, their #specialtycoffees are really good and it's still worth the trip down for the coffee nonetheless.

Trademark Thai dish, one of the best and highlight of dinner. Everyone loved it!
Cheap also!

Good options for Thai desserts including this "chendol" and mango sticky rice. Super affordable here! Also extremely comfortable and clean with aircon :D

Red Devil ($8.90) is made of a chewy red velvet cookie with cream cheese lava center that oozes out when we drop a scoop of lychee sorbet (has bits of lychee fruits too!). Distinctive flavours that pair well together, we just can't get enough of the "Devil"

At a lost of how to pair? Just ask the friendly staff and they are more than willing to provide you some suggestions.

Very much a fan of any dishes made with puff pastry, Dim Sum Haus’ Baked BBQ Pork Pastry (3 pcs, $4.50) were nicely puffed and golden brown. Not too thick, crusty or crumbly, the freshly baked layers were pleasantly buttery and pair that with the savoury-sweet char siew filling was simply exquisite.

Saving the best for the last, Dim Sum Haus’ pillowy-soft Steamed Malay Sponge Cake - Malai Gou ($3.20) was two-thumbs up. The light texture of the warm sponge and the lingering sweet notes was so guud. Airy and slightly eggy, I not only enjoyed the fluffy, springy texture but most of all the deep flavour of brown sugar.

Giving the other dim sum restaurants in the area a run for their money, Dim Sum Haus offers a good and really decent variety especially with their pocket-friendly price tag. From the classic, fluffy-soft Honey BBQ Pork Bun (3 pcs, $3.50) to the more unique offerings like their Steamed Charcoal Chicken & Shrimp Dumplings (3 pcs, $4) and supple Japanese Dumplings (5 pcs, $4.60).

One of my favourites, the Steamed Crispy Rice Roll with Shrimp ($4.20) was flavourful, saucey and had a great play of textures with the crunchy roll, bouncy shrimp and soft yet firm rice noodle skin. Also, not to be missed is the crowd-pleasing, Crispy Mee Sua Kueh with Chinese Sausage (3 pcs, $3.60) that was fried to perfection. A must-order, the blocks were evenly crisp on all edges and remained nicely moist on the inside complete with fragrant bits of sausage and dried shrimps. The Baked Salted Egg Custard Buns (3 pcs, $4.80) were also spot-on with the savoury golden lava and crusty exterior. But the highlight for me was surprisingly the pillowy-soft Steamed Sponge Cake - Malai Gou ($3.20). Saving the best for the last, the light texture of the warm sponge and the lingering sweet notes was so guud.

Overall, exceeding the initial expectations, I really enjoyed all the dim sums I tried - served pipping hot and made fresh upon ordering. I can certainly see myself going there to satisfy my cravings.

A big thank you to Burpple for the invite, @dimsumhaus57jlnbesar for feeding us and Geraldine from PR Salon for the wonderful hospitality!

Instead of the usual Szechuan dumplings that we are more familiar with, wrapped with a generous amount of meat and plump shrimps, Dim Sum Haus’ Japanese Dumplings (5 pcs, $4.60) was thoroughly enjoyable - especially for those like me who can’t handle spice. Flavourful and saucey, the supple dumplings are seasoned a little heavier but super shiok as the delicate skin soaks up all the tangy-sweet Worcestershire sauce. Yum!

Hop over to the relatively new @dimsumhaus57jlnbesar for a wide selection of dim sum offerings at affordable prices.

Consistent food quality, cleaner dining environment and no crazy queues like the other famed dim sum shop at Jalan Besar which I don't understand why.

Having only tried Mee Sua Kueh from the other Dim Sum eatery along the road, Dim Sum Haus’ rendition was much more to my liking. Not to be missed, the Crispy Mee Sua Kueh with Chinese Sausage (3 pcs, $3.60) was fried to perfection and didn’t leave a greasy aftertaste. The blocks were also evenly crisp on all edges and remained nicely moist on the inside complete with fragrant bits of sausage and dried shrimps.
