Phew …. After the initial shock that we got on a Sunday morning, with roads all jammed up, all of the dim sum outlets in the vicinity crowded to the max (even coffee shops also jumped in the fray and business was booming!) and us running away with tails between our legs, FINALLY redemption came on a weekday’s morning.
Don’t get overwhelmed. Keyword is : DON’T EVER GIVE UP. Practise your steely glance (or puppy-eyed blinks) and stay adamant at one spot. (Or more, if you’re in a gang of ‘vultures’)
Weekends are definite no-no’s, unless you come REALLY early, or VERY late. They serve dim sum from about 6.30am onwards, until the day’s supplies finish up, or until about 2pm. No dim sum for dinner, sadly. Which is kind of a bummer, really. I wouldn’t mind digging into my Char Siew Pau and Siew Mai for dinner, or better yet, supper!
Remember – Don’t push your luck, and come prancing and whistling on a Tuesday morning. And sharing a table is a norm at Foh San. Especially if you’re in a small group.
