An evergreen Chinese favorite, dim sum is a popular item to snack on when visiting hawker food centers and when exploring Chinatown in Singapore. Dim sum literally means touch the heart and Singapore’s authentic offerings are sure to touch yours. Yum Cha in Chinatown has a vast dim sum menu at affordable prices. Make sure to get the soup dumplings—the poetic sounding Xiao Long Bao practically melts in your mouth. And leave room for the famous egg tarts (order these as soon as you sit down because they are likely to run out).
