And so the story goes.. After the pretty average food experience at Yong He with his friends, Makan Boy suggested to patronise 揾到食. This is not the first time I have been here and it's definitely quite a popular spot for supper for many people.
My friends were already quite full by this time so we decided to order just a bit to try out. The Kong Ba Bao 扣肉包 ($3.20) were really good. It was not your average Kong Ba Bao where the bun itself is much thicker not to mention the shape is different. In this case, the bun or rather skin (?) is very thin and barely covers the meat. The meat is different too and carries a bit of herbal taste. But it's still quite good although I think the normal Kong Ba Bao is good enough for me.
Siew Mai ($2.50) is another standard dim sum we have to try at any dim sum place. Sadly, their dim sum didn't really impress us at all.
Now, comes the star of the night: Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun ($3.50)! One bite of it and I can already feel that this was really something special. I looked at my friends and I knew what was on their minds even though they speak a word. It amazingly silky! Smooth as well! Again, it was not like the usual chee cheong fun. The sauce is quite different but this is one of the best chee cheong fun I had!
This is a really great place for people to hang out for supper. I would definitely come back again just for the chee cheong fun. The last time I came here, I remembered that their porridge is quite good too. There's a lot of other stuff on their menu so I might try those next time. Something really quite queer I noticed was that they actually sell crab meat (those processed crab meat that we all love) and called it 红白. I can't help but wonder if anyone would actually order thsi. And lo and behold, I did actually saw someone ordered it not on this visit but on my previous visit. Oh well, maybe there was something heavenly about their particular crab meat that I'm missing out. Perhaps..

wen dao shi also known as 126 in geylang is the more well liked and most sought for dim sum place in singapore especially during wee hours or early in the morning when you need something to warm your tummy! we went there last Tuesday morning and we were given a seat in the air con area! the ice barley drink and the scallop porridge is something I never miss ordering! the employees are friendly too. overall experience is very pleasant
the food was delicious last time. tthe time when they only had one shop. now that biz got better , they expanded and the seating space is now much more. i am happy for them that the business is getting better. but their food is getting worst. its ok but was much better last time. if you are looking for a quick bite , something thats not too heavy like rice or noodles, you can try here. the parking , though, is very diff to find. there is a lot of eating places around the area and hence parking is a challenge. you can try their hao gao or siew mai. jowever their fried items are sometimes over cooked.
