Push Cart Dim Sum Restaurant in Thomson Plaza – Peach Garden

Fans of dim sum trolleys will be pleased to find that push carts are still used to serve dim sum at Chinese restaurant, Peach Garden in Thomson Plaza. There are not many push cart dim sum restaurants these days. This traditional Cantonese restaurant still has that laid back feel.

Thomson Plaza is a suburban mall that have withstood the test of time. While some retail malls struggle, this place seems to continue to draw in the visitors. The peak hours are weekends and weekday lunch when it draws nearby working folks to its many restaurants. Thomson Plaza has also completed its extensive renovation and sports a new bright look in the common areas for 2020. The basement food court and eateries look interesting as well.

Peach Garden Thomson Plaza is at level one, right next to the Daiso $2 Shop (which took over from the former DIY shop). The entrance looks small and narrow. But do not be fooled. There is a large dining hall inside. It is best to book when dining here at peak hours.

The dim sum trolleys are the main attraction at Peach Garden. They look quite plain, but brings back the good old days when most dim sum restaurants were served this way. Back then, the trolleys also served as mobile cooking stations where dishes such as fried carrot cake were prepared. At Peach Garden. each trolley carries a selection of dim sum. There was no sign on the push cart itself. So we stopped each one that came along and enquired about the cargo it was carrying.

Peach Garden Thomson Plaza Menu

With the dim sum push carts, we did not have to bother about the dim sum menu. We just picked what we liked that came our way. We did also ordered some dishes from the a la carte menu. Here are pictures of some sample pages from the Peach Garden Thomson Plaza Menu.

Our Lunch

Other than the push carts, our lunch that day was quite predictable (some might even say boring). Our dim sum selections were har kau, char siew pau, bean curd skin rolls and rice rolls with prawns. They costs around $6.80 each. We were pleasantly surprised when there was a 50% discount off dim sum when we received the bill at the end of the meal.

The century egg porridge ($5.80, no discount) was tasty and well done.

The char siew ($18, picture above) was a tad pricey but very good. The meat was juicy and succulent. The ee fu noodles with crabmeat ($24) was less outstanding.

Lunch at the push cart dim sum restaurant in Thomson Plaza provided us with a break from the humdrum activities of life. It is fun to order food by looking at them and pointing rather than from a menu.
