Getting straight to the point, allow us to present to you our favourite picks from the menu!

1. Double Boiled Cartilage Soup

A great starting appetiser, the warmness of the soup goes straight to your heart, and it boasts high nutritional values. The texture is smooth and you will not be disappointed by the richness of the soup’s ingredients once it hits your taste buds!

2. Sliced Pork in Garlic & Chilli Sauce

The chef’s recommendation as the first meat to kickstart your appetite, this is their signature sliced pork immersed with an extremely savory garlic & chilli sauce combination. Not only is the pork succulent and melts in your mouth – it makes a great combo with the chilli spices and is sure to bring out the flavour of the meat.

3. Signature Pork Belly Roll with Yam

The flawless texture of the white bun makes this look like a perfect char siew bun – but don’t be mistaken!

Inside this delicious treat resides an abundance of pork belly mixed with yam. This unique combination has not been tried before by many, but we guarantee you will not regret your decision! The pork belly is roasted to goodness and it surprisingly goes well with yam! For yam lovers, this will be your excellent choice during the buffet!

4. Stir Fried Beef with Bitter Gourd in Black Bean Sauce

This dish is a classic one well-known to all Chinese “tze char” restaurants, where you get stir fried beef in black bean sauce – along with vegetables such as bitter gourd (for this one). The quality of this dish is on par with famous restaurants featured in Singapore, and we were satisfied with the quality of the stir friend beef – cooked close to perfection.

5. Hakka Dumpling with Turnips

Moving along to the real “dimsum” category, this Hakka dumpling stuffed with turnips is VERY generous in its fillings! It might look small from the photo, but in reality you can tell from its perky shape that once you bite into this dumpling, the fillings inside simply spillover to your tongue and you can enjoy the Hakka filling along with the savoury turnips.

6. Siew Mai with Dice Abalone

Of course, no dim sum restaurant can be called a dim sum restaurant if they did not serve ‘Siew Mai’. However, what makes Si Chuan Dou Hua special is that they serve quality Siew Mai as well as diced abalone on top of it! It makes an excellent bonus on top of a great Chinese dish.

7. Steamed Yam Paste with Salted Egg Yolk

Salted Egg Yolk? Yes, please! Normally people would expect a smooth custard bursting into their mouths, similar to that at Swee Choon or 126.

However, Si Chuan Dou Hua’s Salted Egg Yolk is drier in nature, and this is good because it gives you the full taste of the egg yolk. This also goes well together with the yam paste inside the bun. I particularly loved the marble swirl pattern of the bun!

8. Beef Brisket Noodle Soup

This dim sum buffet is not all just about dim sum and a la carte meat – you also have a choice of noodles, porridge and rice. And mind you, it’s not just any noodle on the street. You can tell from the image that the noodle has the right thickness, glow, and the beef brisket soup has the correct “zhup” richness. A humble portion is served so that your stomach will be able to take this and enjoy the other 50 buffet items!

9. Homemade Bean Curd with Wolfberry

This is simply delicious! Apart from the beancurd pudding that everyone was crazed was with Laoban and 51, this restaurant serves the traditional style bean curd that isn’t processed, but homemade. Topped with wolfberries, it complements the nutritious bean curd that isn’t too sweet either!
