Red star Sunday



Dim sum has been always my favourite and I can have them everyday. It has been two years since we last went to Red Star for dim sum. Hence I didn’t hesitate at all when the #jiaklimnuagang suggested for a dim sum brunch there. It was such a brilliant idea.

The restaurant is usually crowded during the weekend and the queue is constantly long. But we were willing to queue for the dim sum even with a baby bump. 😉 Anyways it’s always better to go there early as some of the food would run out by afternoon and the kitchen wouldn’t replenish them again.


I love going for dim sum in a group because we could order a table full of variety to share. And indeed we did achieve that! The brunch was simply satisfying. 🙂

In my opinion, food at Red Star is perhaps above average, not fantastic, but it’s the place that attracted me. The old school nostalgic ambience and traditional dim sum trolleys made our dining experience a more interesting one. As much as how special it was to have dim sum carts moving around, it’s best to hunt down the specific trolleys yourself especially when it’s crowded or if you are seated at the back. It’s almost certain that those popular dishes would take forever to reach you as people in front would have already taken them away.



After our satiated brunch, we headed over to Robertson Walk for our coffee session. Like what our hashtag #jiaklimnuagang says: Jiak-eat, lim- drink,  nua- slack, it’s a sequence that we had to complete. Haha 🙂



Brekkie at Red Star

***2nd January 13***

Right after fetching Darian from school, we headed to Red Star restaurant to satisfy my dimsum craving! 🙂 Red star on a weekend is really packed. So it is the most ideal to go on a weekday. No crowd, no queue and prompt service. Best! The Dimsum are all served on push carts. There will be ladies pushing the carts around serving the dimsum. So can you imagine on crowded days when you are seated at a far end, most probably by the time the carts reach you, most of the dimsum would already be taken. We think that the food standard here is above average but definitely not the best. Dim sum at the Asia Grand restaurant is better. Yet with the total old school style, back to the 70’s set up makes me feel like revisiting Red Star again. Guess ambience does play a part. Every time when I think of dim sum, I will think of Red Star. It’s just that nostalgic feeling! 🙂
