His first time and my 3rd time. The best dish was the fried yam cake (thanks to burppler users' recommendation again!) The other food items were alright but slightly expensive ($23 for all these items!)? Swee Choon dim sum is still my favourite place! #126dimsum #burpple #burpplesg

Hard to find but there is!

At 126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi, they offer a variety of dim sum and oh, the drinks are so interesting. It's in a big plastic container instead of the normal cup size.

We ordered Char Siew Chee Chong Fun, Har Gao, Siew Mai, Fan Choy, Century Egg with Minced Meat Porridge, Claypot Vinegar Pork Trotter (which is spicy so I skipped out), Barley & Lime Juice.😋 Food were great but the portion were quite small. Total was around $30+ So rather cheap! Worth it~

Mini custard buns that are made to the right size so it doesn’t get too cloyed. Buns are piping hot with flowy custard. 4 out of 5 mochi 🍡🍡🍡🍡

Har Gao skin is a tad too thick and sticky but prawn filling is huge and juicy. 3.5 out of 5 mochi 🍡🍡🍡🍥

Beancurd prawn like its Har Gao counterpart has got big, fresh and juicy prawn filling. Beancurd is flavourful with the sweetness of the prawns and sauce infused in it. 3.5 out of 5 mochi 🍡🍡🍡🍥

Very generous serving which is great for sharing. Porridge is cooked to a nice consistency and flavourful with chewy minced meat bits. The fried garlic makes it even more fragrant. 4 out of 5 mochi 🍡🍡🍡🍡

Chee Cheong Fun Roll ($4.20)
.
A surprising find from 126 Dim Sum at Sims Avenue. This CCF (aka rice roll) with mushroom filling was panfried till golden brown then topped with the usual cheong fun sauce giving the overall taste a spin. Really enjoyed this new find! Most of the other items I tried were decent to my liking but not something which I would travel for specifically.

Century Egg Porridge ($3)
.
My staple order when having dim sum. This was from 126 Dim Sum at Sims Avenue. The porridge was of a thicker consistency and was chock full of ingredients like minced pork, loads of century egg and topped with fried garlic chips and spring onion. Really appetizing!

The Lowdown:
Not your typical Cantonese chow-down, but the variety they offer is quite surprising.
Give it a try— it's just conveniently downtown, and more wallet-friendly than those higher end traditional dim sum diners.

Order this: Fried yam/ carrot cake; it is one of the best I've had.

The breakdown
From top to bottom in the image, here are my ratings from "meh" to "fair".
• Chee cheong fun(猪肠粉)
Rice noodles rolls were meh. The sauce was oddly starchy, reminding me more of a Hokkien paste than the Cantonese soy sauce most of us are familiar with.
• Char siu bao(叉烧包)
BBQ pork buns were eh. The pork could have been better seasoned.
• Hor yip fun(荷叶饭)
Lotus-wrapped rice was fair— actually it was better than I was expecting
• Minced meat Cuttlefish porridge(墨鱼粥)was fair. Pink cuttlefish were quite chewy; some prefer that. There was barely any minced meat in it. I don't imagine they evenly distribute ingredients in their dishes.

Pity they didn't have Dan tat(蛋挞)Egg tart or Char siu sou(叉烧酥)BBQ pork pastry on the menu. These are usually what defines the classic dim sum experience for me.

126 (Wan Dou Sek) is definitely one of my favourite dimsum places. Their dimsum is all made fresh and their menu has a really impressive variety of food, with lots of variations of dimsum!

I particularly like the sauce on the chee cheong fan here- not the typical soya sauce or red sauce, but a sort of gravy like sauce that is so addictive. The fried carrot cakes are also amazing - they're fried so well that it just tastes out of the world. The kong-ba baos have the perfect ratio of fat, meat and bao!!! If you like sweet stuff, their malay cake is also really nice and fluffy, and they definitely match 126's distinctive bright yellow walls! I guess it's safe to say that I like everything I've tried here.

Don't we just love our suppers 😍 Popular late-night supper joint, especially amongst S'pores & M'sians. Have been here countless of times over the past 8 years. They have a wide selection of uniquely created dishes that is worth trying! I've never really liked this place initially, but it grew on me.

Rating: 7.5/10

Will i return/recommend: Yes/Yes

Pros: Open 24 hrs. Wide menu offerings. The constant crowd makes the place vibrant and lively. Go for their unique dishes. Fav: Chee cheong fun (crab and prawn), steam egg w bird's nest, pumpkin w shark fin soup, fried tofu/scallops/mini char siew baos, porridge.

Cons: Very grubby place. I don't like their generic dim sum dishes, they do a really bad job at it. Worst i've tried: Steamed char Siew buns, har gow (& similar steamed dumplings), pork ribs, siew mai, fried frog legs.

Price: S$25.47 for everything pictured

Travelled all the way to Geylang from the west for this meal 😂 with my bffs @tingest and @bahblahh. I must say the fried carrot cake (those random squares on the pink plate) and the signature beancurd with mango salad was 😍😍😍😍😍😍. The carrot cake is so small but has a damn nice crisp exterior and is super soft and yum inside. The rest okok la haha wouldn't travel specially to eat here again. #burpple

Guilty food trip 🍽

Their fried food ( intestine, prawn dumpling, soft-shell crab) fare much better than their steamed dim sum (siew mai that's tasteless?) *Chee Cheong Fun* would be highly recommended with their unique , thick sweet sauce! However avoid their man tou with Chili crab sauce at all costs as it was terribly sweet and the level of spiciness tend to be absolutely absent!

Enjoyed the fried chicken wings the most out of this lot, warm and well coated in salty goodness. The BBQ pork chee cheong fun had a gamey taste, not to my liking. The siew mai were seriously puny—we ordered the basic siew mai though, so maybe opt for the king prawn version if you visit so they might come in larger serving sizes.
