Paradise Teochew VivoCity – dim sum at new Teochew restaurant


Paradise Teochew VivoCity is the latest new restaurant by the Paradise restaurant group. It is located in a quiet corner of level 1 of Vivo City (it is the last unit along the side facing Sentosa and furthest away from Harbourfront). Yet it was a full house when we were there.
