Get Legit HK Dim Sum Under $10 In Marina Square, Including Black Sesame Custard Balls

Hong Kong Zhai Dim Sum has affordable dim sum in the CBD

Dim sum is arguably the best food to have if you love having variety in your food. The different bite-sized items are a great way to try a bit of everything on the menu, and they make for an ideal meal to share with your friends and family. Hong Kong Zhai Dim Sum provides just that, and even more—though located in the CBD, prices are still pretty affordable here!

Let’s kickstart the list of dim sum with their Creamy Custard Bun ($5.20+), starring three pandan-infused buns packed with a creamy salted egg filling. These green buns are a fun twist to your regular custard bun as the pandan adds a bit of fragrance on top of the sweet-savoury molten salted egg yolk centre.

Alternatively, take it up a notch with their Sesame Creamy Custard Ball ($6.50+). Each plate comes with six pieces of chewy balls, evenly coated with black sesame seeds for an earthy nuttiness. The seeds also add a nice textural contrast to the viscous salted egg filling.

Don’t sleep on their HK French Toast ($3.80+) while you’re here. This moreish snack features a thick toast coated in egg which is then deep-fried to achieve a satisfying crunch in every bite. And of course, it’s topped with a slab of butter, and served with a drizzle of honey for the perfect balance of sweet and salty flavours.
