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.
Here is our guide to The Best Dim Sum Restaurants in Singapore.
