Tunglok Teahouse Singapore – Exquisite Handmade Dim Sum

Tunglok means 同乐 in Mandarin, which basically means “happy together” in English. A great and telling name for a restaurant if you ask me. Known for their exquisitely handmade dimsum made on the spot, we knew we had to give it a try.

On our table

It was a bright, sunny day when we decided that it was time for some dimsum lovin’.

Before we show you the ones we don’t usually see at other restaurants, let’s start off with the usual suspects.

Dim Sum Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse | Pan Fried Radish Cake

Pan Fried Turnip Cake: $4.50+

The pan fried turnip cake was to die for. Each bite bursting with freshness, so good it shows from the pictures (right??)! Definitely one of our top favourites from this dim sum visit.

Beancurd Skin Rolls with Fresh Prawns

You can never go wrong with beancurd skin + fresh prawns.

As you take a bite, the crunch from the freshly fried beancurd skin will meet the tenderness of the fresh and tasty prawn filling. Nomz.

Dim Sum Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse | Century Egg Porridge

Century Egg Porridge

Porridge was regular, methinks. Could have been slightly tastier but it was a good and simple staple to fill your belly with.

Dim Sum Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse | Xiao Long Bao

Xiao Long Bao: $4.80+

Xiao long bao was pretty tasty too, but the picture doesn’t do it justice. Perhaps it would be nicer if it were to look plumper and fuller, so more meat filling would do the trick. 😛

 

Dim Sum Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse | Siew Mai

Siew Mai: $4.80+

Siew mai was good, skin was not too thick and meat was juicy.

Dim Sum Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse | Liu Sha Bao

Molten Custard Bun aka Liu Sha Bao

Sorry for not showing you the flowy shot of the liu sha bao, but we assure you it did flow! Couldn’t help but slurp it all up, before thinking of you readers. Hehe #sorrynotsorry

Bun was very soft and chewy too, not too thick, so perfect!

Dim Sum Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse |Baked Barbecue Pork Buns

Baked Barbecue Pork Buns: $4.50+

These buns were tasty, however I thought the bun was not crumbly enough. Perhaps after all the carbs aforementioned, this was a tad too much. It was more bun-ny then a crumbly pastry, the latter would have been lighter and less taxing on the belly mefeels.

Juicy Barbecue Pork bits

The filling was really juicy and all, but we found that it had a tad too much fats in it.

We still prefer Tim Ho Wan’s baked bbq pork buns… #oops

 

Next, onto the signature dishes…

Dim Sum Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse | Signature Rice Roll Cheong Fun

Signature Rice Roll Cheong Fun: $8+

This was unbelievably delicious! We had our doubts about this dish but decided to give it a go since it was a signature dish. So glad we did!!

A thin layer of rice roll wrapped around fried-to-perfection dough fritters, and these fritters had filling in them too! A scrumptious surprise!

It was so good that this was the only shot we managed of it, before we devoured it like savage beasts. #itwasthatgood

Dimsum in Singapore | Tunglok Teahouse | Wild Mushrooms with Truffle Bao

Wild Mushrooms With Black Truffle Bao: $4.80+

Never seen a bun as lovely as this! These buns bear an uncanny resemblance to a mushroom, cap and stalk all. So much effort and skills meticulously put into one bun. Just look at the intricate system of patterns on the exterior of the bun, I could stare at this all day. Definitely instagram-worthy!

 

Savoury filling consists of a mixture of juicy mushrooms, namely Japanese shiitake, King Oyster Mushrooms, Tea Tree Mushrooms and more.

Bun was thick and chewy, complementing the juicy mushroom filling

Bun was so soft and fluffy and chewy all at the same time. It was so good that we couldn’t help ordering another round of these buns.

Whether you’re a fungi-lover or not, this is definitely a must-try!
