Longtime is a far more sophisticated eatery than your usual yum cha spot. With space for 200 odd diners, the venue is decked out in a myriad of textures in muted tones, from aqua green tiling and polished concrete columns to glowing hanging globe lights and cherry blossom-patterned seating.
You’ll want to take a group and nab a table with a lazy Susan for ease of sharing, because there are over 50 dim sum items on the menu. Pile the table high with the likes of barbecue pork buns, pork xiao long baos, king prawn dumplings, sesame prawn toasts, roast duck, pan fried gyoza and crispy fried soft shell crab. If you need a little more than mouthful-sized morsels, tasty as they may be, there’s also a selection of live seafood, rice and noodle and meat dishes, including jumbo tiger prawns in garlic butter sauce, slow-cooked pork belly and a Mongolian lamb rack.
On the drinks front, as well as wines and beers you’ll find a lengthy list of classic and creative cocktails to sip your way through. Will it be a Longtime original like the Chin Fizz with rum, lemon, Luxardo, Wonderfoam and bitters, or classic with a twist, like the Sakura Cosmo with vodka, dry curacao, rose water, lime and cranberry?
