East-siders, here’s more reason to flex that you live in the best side of Singapore as heritage dim sum restaurant, Swee Choon Dim Sum, is opening in Tampines.
Swee Choon’s flagship outlet in Jalan Besar is a dim sum legend, serving up their popular liu sha bao, carrot cakes, and other handmade treats till 3am night after night. The brand has been around since 1962, and has grown from strength to strength, expanding to take over their neighbouring outlets. Now, they’re ready to dominate the east with their newfound presence in Tampines Food Co., a cloud kitchen concept.
Located at 10 Tampines North Drive 4, Swee Choon Tampines primarily functions as a kitchen to give Eastsiders delivery and takeaway access to Swee Choon’s menu at a cheaper price point than their islandwide service. This explains the industrial address. However, the cloud kitchen also has a 60-seater dining area, so if you live nearby, you can easily pop by to have your dim sum fix.
Otherwise, you can enjoy Swee Choon Dim Sum, with prices starting from just $5.90 for set meals, on delivery platforms like GrabFood, Foodpanda, and Deliveroo. Currently, the eatery is offering free delivery with a minimum spend of $25, which is not hard to hit considering the array of options you get to choose from.
There will also be Tampines exclusives available. The first is the Steamed Dim Sum Platter ($11.90), with two har gaos, two siew mais, two salted egg yolk baos, and two char siew baos. There is also the more sinful Hong Kong Fried Dim Sum Platter ($12.90), with eight items including fried prawn dumplings, spring rolls, and carrot cake.
Address: 10 Tampines North Drive 4, #01-05 JTC Space, Singapore 528553
