The term “dim sum” has a literal translation of “touching the heart”, and this double entendre truly reflects the effect of savouring these bite-sized creations. Served in traditional bamboo baskets, there is a myriad of choices from vegetarian fillings to juicy meat ones.
The best part about dim sum is the fact that it can be eaten at any time of the day. In Singapore, there has been a significant rise in halal-certified dim sum eateries that cater to the expansive Muslim market. Our Muslim friends need not miss out on the good stuff now.

If a yuletide celebration does not mean turkeys and log cakes, then Mitzo’s Holiday Champagne Brunch should tempt you.
If you are searching for an elegant venue to spend Christmas Day in or to usher into 2017, we highly recommend our all-time favourite Chinese restaurant and it is none other than Mitzo Restaurant & Bar at Grand Park Orchard.
Most of you are already familiar with Mitzo’s spectacular Weekend Dim Sum Brunch—where you can indulge in seafood supreme dishes and unlimited portions of gourmet dim sum and an option of free-flow champagne, selected cocktails, wines and beer. It is truly the Holy Grail of Chinese fine dining!
Say hello to Mitzo’s Holiday Champagne Brunch—which is essentially an amplified version of the current Weekend Dim Sum Brunch this festive. This Champagne Brunch features over 40 types of dishes and it is one luxurious treat you deserve.
We have never experienced dim sum the way we have at Mitzo Restaurant & Bar. The swanky, sleek and modern interior is a stark contrast to the traditional Chinese cuisine that is served here. To match the trendy interior, most of Mitzo’s classic dim sum dishes are elevated with stunning presentations and intricate plating, while still retaining the original flavour palette.
While we love their tantalising and luxurious dishes in their Weekend Brunch, we are stoked that we now have a new reason to pop by on weekday afternoon - Mitzo is launching the all-new value-for-money lunch sets on 12 October 2016. A 3-course meal goes for S$28++ per person, and a 4-course meal is S$38++ per person.
Dim Sum – or what we know as little parcels of happiness – is essentially steamed Chinese-style tapas that are usually served in bamboo baskets. The consumption of dim sum started from the Cantonese community and is now a favourite afternoon past-time amongst Singaporeans too.
As dim sum is usually eaten during the day, most Chinese restaurants only serve these dainty dishes until late afternoon (only a few restaurants serve dim sum until ate night). The variety of dim sum is exhaustive—baked egg tarts, steamed shrimp dumplings, salted egg yolk buns, fried radish cake, barbecue pork buns… and the list goes on.
