There are plenty of dim sum restaurants around Singapore, but few make them as well as Victor’s Kitchen. Located in Sunshine Plaza and Chinatown Point, Victor’s Kitchen serves up authentic Hong Kong-style dim sum at affordable prices!
Some fun facts: the restaurant’s head chef is a Hong Kong native, and has even worked as a chef at a five-star hotel there. He moved to Singapore over a decade ago, and brought his dim sum recipes along.

Victor’s Kitchen is renowned for their delicious dim sum, but one dish that stands out above the rest is their Golden Egg Yolk Lava Bun ($5.30 for three), or just $1.70 a bao! This custard bun has gained a reputation for being one of, if not the best of its kind in Singapore, and it’s not hard to see why. Within the bun’s fluffy skin is a rich, buttery salted egg filling that oozes out with each bite. It’s a delicious burst of flavour which keeps customers coming back for more—even if it means braving the long waiting time.

Another must-try item here is the Char Siew Bolo Bun ($5.20 for two). Their bolo buns comprise a crispy crust that contrasts nicely with the soft, fluffy bun. Inside, you’ll find thickly diced pork chunks cooked in a savoury BBQ sauce.

Don’t forget to try the other classic dim sum items, too. Their Tasty Queen Size Siew Mai ($5 for four) comes highly recommended, stuffed with fresh prawn and pork. Otherwise, Victor’s King Prawn Dumplings ($5.90 for three) is also an excellent choice . Customers have also praised their filling to skin ratio, so you get lots of liao in each bite.
If you’re looking for something unique, opt for Spring Is In The Air Cheong Fun ($5.80). This dish features cabbage, carrots, and prawn chunks within a smooth, silky rice noodle skin.

For something lighter on the palate, their Egg Tart ($4.90 for two) has a smooth custard filling held together by a delicate buttery crust. To end your meal, wash it all down with a refreshing cup of HK Summer Iced Milk Tea ($3.50), which is said to be rich, fragrant, and well-balanced in sweetness.
