Chinatown Restaurant, Chinese restaurant in Chinatown Point

Chinatown Restaurant is a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown Point. Located on level one of this popular shopping mall in the heart of Singapore’s Chinatown, it was formerly known as Lukyu Teahouse and Restaurant. Chinatown must be the most bustling place in Singapore on a normal weekday. At lunchtime, Chinatown Point draws in the hungry crowds. Many of its food outlets and restaurants were full.  The only place with some space and peace and quiet was the Chinatown Restaurant.  We were there for a dim sum lunch recently.

We think the best bo lo bao in Singapore can be found at the Wah Lok Restaurant in the Carlton Hotel along Bras Basah Road. Good dim sum restaurants are expected to have the basic dim sum items like char siu bao and har kao done right. Wah Lok is one restaurant that does all this plus also the very important bo lo bao. This is the place to go in Singapore when we are in the mood for bolo bao.
