Call this the ”Swee Choon” effect, but there are quite a number of dim sum restaurants that can be found along Jalan Besar Road – Dim Sum Haus, Johore Bahru Ye Zhi Mei Handmade Bao, and Sum Dim Sum. (Plus The Dim Sum Place at North Bridge Road is not too far away.)
Sum Dim Sim 心点心 is located right opposite Berseh Food Centre, of short walking distance from ‘competitor’ Swee Choon.
It is opened every day of the week till 1:30am, which is good news for those who want to find a dim sum alternative (especially on Tuesday when Swee Choon is closed.)
The restaurant takes on a more modern and pretty approach, with tiffany-blue accents with double-floors which can entertain quite a number of diners.
Its menu is extensive with steamed, pan-fried, deep-fried, baked items, noodles, porridge, rice and desserts.,
Most baskets and plates are priced ranging in the $4 – $6 region.
Slightly pricier than those in the vicinity, but the dining environment is more comfortable and cosy with friendly service (ie no fierce aunties).
The recommended items include Fresh Prawn Dumpling with Asparagus, Wolfberry with Mushroom Dumpling, Bamboo
