Victor's Kitchen

Part of the charm of this place is getting gooddim sum in an unlikely location. The eatery isnamed after founder and chef Victor Leung, who,after spending more than two decades working inkitchens in Hong Kong, wanted to offer quality dim sum in Singapore at affordable prices.

A hidden gem, this glass-fronted shop with anopen kitchen is located in an old-school buildinghome to a number of printing and toy collectible shops. It enjoys a steady flow of regulars during the day and long waiting lines during lunch time and weekends.Diners tick their choices from about 20 items off an order sheet from a selection including favourites like melt-in-your-mouth steamed XO carrot cake, a refreshing and healthier alternative from the usual pan-fried version, and king prawn dumplings, which are larger in size than what you can find elsewhere.

It is also hard to ignore thecall to order a basket of golden egg yolk lava bunsas pictures of it are plastered all over the walls.Be prepared to slurp up the hot yellow custardthat oozes from the bun as you break it. Finish it off with a Hong Kong Summer Ice Tea, whichis served in a bowl of ice to keep the tea chilledwithout it getting diluted.
