Avenue Joffre

RWS gets a kitschy-cute new dimsum joint.

There's no dearth of beige-and-white, starched tablecloth dim sum places to take your parents to on Sundays, but the new opening at RWS promises a bit more fun. Named after a 1940s filmmaker-turned-avid dinner host's residence in the Shanghai's French Concession, Avenue Joffre has a kitschy-cute, Disney-meets-Oriental facade with red French windows, lattice work and turquoise blue eaves. 

There's no dearth of beige-and-white, starched tablecloth dim sum places to take your parents to on Sundays, but the new opening at RWS promises a bit more fun.

Inside, the menu is largely Shanghainese, Cantonese and Sichuan, with dishes like the homemade Sichuan pickles with chicken feet ($12), Shanghai smoked fish ($13) and their signature marinated chicken in spicy sauce ($15). You'll of course want to try the Peking duck ($75) and the roasted crispy pork belly (from $20). Seafood fans, there's the braised king prawn with homemade tofu ($22) or the Szechuan chef’s poached sliced fish in chili oil. 

But the highlight is the dim sum menu. Prices start at $5, and you get a selection of dumplings and other savory and sweet classics. Pan-fried pork dumpling are $7 and mini glutinous rice dumplings go for $5. For healthier options, try the steamed crystal prawn dumplings ($6) or the steamed egg yolk bun ($5).
