Dim Joy (点聚)

Dim Joy is a place that prides itself on understanding how to eat dim sum. They have instructions, teaching you how to hold your chopsticks. This is very common in the US, but very uncommon in Singapore. They also don't have the standard teapots you see in normal restaurants. You can also see here how much they emphasise dim sum art.

I must have been the only person out of the group of 5 that didn't find the dim sum to be awesome. I found it okay, but not as fantastic as it ought to be. My main gripe with the egg tart was that it was laden with salted butter. The pastry of the egg tart turned out to be salty, instead of being neutral.

The prawns of the har gow were fresh. But the skins were a little too thick for my liking.

Nonetheless, the piping hot porridge made up for it.

The char siew dishes were also good.

Make sure you make a reservation if you want to come here on a weekend. Otherwise you will spend your time waiting for the tables to clear as the place is rather small and can only contain a few tables. There are some tables outside, but they are often full as well.
