Hungry for a late night supper or an early breakfast, try visiting Swee Choon Tim Sum which opens in the evening and throughout the night till the following morning. We dropped by one day to grab some snacks.

The Portuguese Egg Tarts were pretty average. The crust was flaky; there was a generous amount of egg fillings which weren’t too sweet. But still, there was nothing too fantastic to rave about. The Fried Custard Pumpkins were rather unique, we rarely see it around in Singapore. However, it was seriously overly oily. The entire pumpkin snack was practically glazed and glittering with oil. The skin was very thick and starchy as well. The custard fillings tasted more towards lotus bean paste, rather than custard. The Mee-Suan Kueh tasted very similar to Carrot Cake. On the outside, the deep fried mee-suan added crispiness and aroma to the Mee-Suan Kueh. On the inside, the mee-suan was soft and had a texture similar to that of carrot cake.
