I found that the concept is really interesting where your tastebud trying something different and unique, Cocktail pairing with savoury dimsum. It’s definitely worth to try!

My suggestion when you try their dimsum x cocktail pairing  please try Mitzo famous char siew. Their Charsiew is amazing,! It’s burnt into perfection with very thick and crispy caramelized char siew sauce coating. Definitely the best charsiew i’ve ever tried in my life. I can even finish whole slab of char siew on my own..
