When it comes to Dim Sum, there is no shortage of reliable spots in Singapore. Auntie’s Wok and Steam Weekend Yum Cha pricing is relatively accessible than other hotel restaurants, however they have a smaller spread to choose from. Not so good news for the hungry folks looking for a greater selection, but they compensate for this with some premium items and signature dishes.
In terms of quality and overall taste, the dim sum items just could not cut it against my go-to dim sum places, but one thing is certain — the wok-and-stir-fried dishes hit the spot for me! Auntie’s Wok and Steam is a reliable choice for those seeking modern tze char food fare with gentle Sichuan influences. Dining here comes with a charming view of the city which is an absolute bonus!
