Following the success of its first outlet at Laguna Village, Diamond Kitchen has opened a larger, more spacious outlet in the West. The slightly inaccessible location hasn’t stopped regulars from returning (the sprawling 300-seater is located on the first floor of Science Park), and reservations are a must on weekends as the place is usually fully packed. Unlike its Laguna Village outlet, the Science Park outlet dishes out quick and affordable one dish meals for the office workers during the day, and the full works during dinner. Zoom in on popular items like the Gan Xiang Fried Rice (from $11) and the finger-licking good Salted Egg Yolk Crab ($68/kg). As part of their third anniversary celebration, the Science Park outlet has an exclusive menu that features the same Gan Xiang spice cooked with Bee Hoon ($25). Another exclusive item worth splurging on is the impressive Diamond Sauna Treasures ($188 or $368). The latter is a massive dim sum basket filled with a bed of hot stones, topped with Boston lobsters, snow crab legs, prawns, scallops and more. It's said that the steam from the hot stones helps to create a "sauna bath" — bringing out the natural sweetness of each seafood!
Avg Price: $35 per person
