Foh San Dim Sum Restaurant @ Jalan Leong Sim Nam, Ipoh
Since my last visit Foh San has relocated to a new and bigger builiding, which is just a stone throw’s away from their old place. The last time we had dim sum here few years ago, we had to wrestle for a table, eat under pressure since people were basically just waiting for you to finish and get off ASAP. You won’t even have time to slowly sip your cuppa tea, unless you could put on a thick skin. In all, it was not a very nice experience.
But I guess the humongous double storey restaurant that Foh San is currently occupying already solved the problem. On my way back to Penang to celebrate CNY, we had a brief stop over at Foh San for lunch. We got a table easily and service was OK, though not as prompt as it could get.
Foh San excels in their steamed dim sum, the ingredients were lovely and fresh. But the rest like fried ones need a lot of improvements, the Char Siew Sou especially. Otherwise it was an enjoyable meal, so much more pleasant than our last one here. When the atmosphere and mood are right, food does taste better.

Victor’s Kitchen is a family run dim sum restaurant in Sunshine Plaza along Bencoolen Street, Singapore that serves authentic Hong Kong Dim Sum. They are able to claim this because the owner and chef himself is a Hongkie. But because of that too the the expectation bar of the dim sum here is higher. Victor’s

After spending hours researching for a good and affordable dim sum restaurant in Singapore, finally I chose to dine at Red Star Restaurant located at Chin Swee Road, somewhere near Chinatown. It was a tough decision really, because there are so many dim sum restaurants to choose from and all of them have their fare

Let me start by saying the only reason I visited Canton-i was to avoid feeling left out. I have been hesitant to try Canton-i because I realize they are under the same management with Dragon-i. For me, this spells discouragement because my experience with Dragon-i in the past was pretty bad. I wasn’t completely hopeless

I only have three words to describe Foh San Dim Sum Restaurant: ‘so damn crowded‘. This is not a complaint ok, just an observation. Customers queuing outside the restaurant for dim sum before 8am. The chaos inside the restaurant. Number of customers standing could easily match those being seated. Your seat hogging skills have to
