126 Wen Dou Sek 揾到食

Talking about 24 Hours Dim Sum, 126 (Wen Dou Sek) comes straight in our mind. Located in Sims Avenue with unit number 126, they sells an authentic fare of Hong Kong Dim Sum.

126 Wen Dou Sek
It's run down ambiance and furnishing was very resemblance to the any eateries in Hong Kong. As it was the still very early in the morning on the 1st Day of the Year, the place was rather empty with air con full blast. Unlike the usual times, the place will be packed full of supper goers.

Interior
The dining floor area was fully utilized with tables and chairs placed so close to each other that one can barely walk through the aisles especially when the hordes were present.

Dining Area
We were out of luck and Char Siew Baos were sold out. Having ordered the porridge, let me present you with the Century Egg Porridge. It was served in a cup rather than a bowl with chopped meat and century eggs.

201 - Century Egg Porridge 皮蛋粥 - $3

While the minced meat porridge was the downgrade version from the former and served in a bowl. A good stomach warmer and went pretty well before the start of any fried or steam dim sum.

Minced Meat Porridge 肉碎粥 - $2.20

The Chee Cheong Fun is one of the dishes that I like and wont get bored after eating. Its gravy was thick and fragrant topped with fried and spring onion. Freshly made to order, it was served piping hot, the fillings of prawns and char siew were succulent. A different style of Chee Cheong fun, Shorter in length and less oily version. Yums!

6, 7 Chee Cheong Fun - 叉烧肠粉,虾肠粉 - $3.80 Each

No high hopes for Liu Sha Bao, they were ordinary, no oozing effects. Fillings were just plain yellow custards but still its hot for the fillings.

225 Liu Sha Bao 流沙包 - $4
 The thin translucent skin layer of the Har Kao were just right wrapped with juicy prawns.

4 Dumpling 明虾角 - $4.20
 Love the thin layer of crispiness that sums up both the carrot and yam cake.

111 & 112 Fried Yam Cake and Carrot Cake 脆皮芋头糕,脆皮萝卜糕, $4.50 Per Plate

While the mango salad sauce was welcoming generous over this crusty fried layer of Toufu which complement its crispy exterior and the soft marshy inside.

73 Signature's Toufu 招牌豆腐 $6
What a sinful meal for a start of the year. Another deep fried stuff, the prawn dumplings. Douse abit of their sweet chilli that packed with prawns paste, it just wont go wrong.
Fried Dumpling 虾角 per plate - $6.60

The other dim sum staples tasted pretty average, Chicken Feet, Siew Mai, Siew mai with scallop and lotus leaves rice was pleasant but not to die for.

196 Chicken Feet 鸡脚 - $3
25 Lotus Leaves Rice 荷叶饭 - $3.80
76 Siew Mai with Scallop 带子烧卖 -$5.50
187 Siew Mai 烧卖 - $2.80






Here's the check list of the order and just like another dim sum eating place, it will get strike off one by one when its is served.

Overall, I would say their Dim Sum was not that Tip Top Outstanding and rather i find it a decent place where one can hang out with a group especially when hunger pangs in the night.
