126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi (搵到食)

Here are some fun facts of 126 Dim Sum.

1) Pronounced as Wan Dou Sek (搵到食) in Cantonese, 126 Dim Sum literally means ‘found something to eat’!

2) it sounds similar to 126 pronounced in English doesn’t it?

3) ‘126’ is their unit number!

Awesome wordplay, dude! That’s all for this post. Nah, I’m kidding.

This is an awesome dim sum spot, not so much for its taste, but for the nostalgic, night-life, chill out and vibrant atmosphere that this place offers. Here’s the bonus, it operates 24 hours, DAILY! This is probably one of the oldest and most authentic Hong Kong styled dim sum available in Singapore and is no surprise that it is always 90% occupied.

Get ready to be spoilt for choices by its extensive menu! Personally, I was a little confused by its variations as everything sounded similar. Well, I did order a couple of classic and typical dim sum such as Custard Bun ($3.50), Siew Mai, Fried Prawn Rolls, Char Siew Bun and Xiao Long Bao.

 Xiao Long Bao was average as the ‘juice’/soup in the bun was almost non-existence.

Siew Mai

Chunky fillings, that’s how it should be!

Char Siew Bun

Char Siew bun was a little disappointing too. Not much of a fragrance in the bbq pork and tasted a little ‘chewy’ due to the mixture used to keep the fillings intact.

Custard Buns

If you are a custard bun fan like me, get ready to be disappointed (But not awful)! I am not trying to be mean, but the truth may hurt. The fillings wasn’t runny nor tasted anything close to salted egg.  (Note: Do take note of the English and Chinese name on the menu and decide which is which.)

 Here were the rest of our orders.

In essence, this is definitely a great place to chill for dinner and supper! Remember to keep your gourmet expectations to a moderate level and you will be just fine! Unique dishes like Crab meat Chee Cheong Fun and Fried Fish Maw, hard-to-get dishes like Steam Otah and Oyster Fritters are also popular here.

Lastly, we spent approximately $15 per pax (3 in total).
