RED STAR RESTAURANT
Can you believe I have never been to #redstardimsum restaurant in my life? It was only yesterday when my niece invited me along to lunch that I finally walked into this iconic place that seems to have been stuck in the 1970’s. The vintage vibes aren’t just found in the decor of wall-to-wall carpeting, a retro stage and the trippy ceiling with Chinese bat motifs, but in the way they serve dimsum using glass-paneled trolley carts pushed around by ladies of a certain age. The protocol here is to wait for them to approach your table, then if what they have in their cart suits your fancy, you get however many you like. The ladies will then make some markings on your order sheet to indicate what you got. A few cart-less ones flit around to take ad hoc orders of items that don’t travel well, like soups for example. The food itself is decent and hearty. I would recommend the fried yam dumplings, plain “chee cheong fun”, the fried dumpling/fritter with prawn and mango, and the version with prawn and banana. I also like the century egg porridge too. If you plan to go on a weekend and don’t wish to queue for a long time, I learned from my niece that it is better to arrive around 1.30pm when the first wave of the lunch crowd has eaten their fill and vamoosed. #veronicaphuaeats #redstardimsumrestaurant #dimsum #burpproved #burpple #burpplesg #foreverhungry #whati8today #roastduck #dumplings #yumcha #cantonesefood #chinesefood #sgrestaurant #igfoodie #sgfoodies #instafood_sg #sgfood #foodspotting #foodporn #foodie #instaeats #foodlover #foodstagram #igfood #onthetable #feedfeed
