搵到食 @ 126 Sims Avenue

Dim sum refers to a style of Cantonese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, whereby fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables (adapted from Wikipedia).

Seated among the shophouses on 126 Sims Avenue, 搵到食 is well-known for its wide selection of dim sum which are not commonly found in many similar stores. Looking out from the car, it looks like a rundown store but it actually extend further in where you are seated and handed with a menu, plain paper and pencil to write your orders.

This is my first time visiting the store which has a nostalgic HongKong retro feel, although I have heard others mentioned about it. So instead of rattling on about how I have missed it in the past, let me head straight to the delicious dishes I ordered today (21 July 2014).

Honey Lemon Tea

In a container? Yes!! That’s their unique style of serving their beverages.

Five Spices Roll

When my grandmother makes the five spices roll, they are usually in a roll but these are flattened and deep-fry till crisp.

Pork Belly Bun

These buns are handmade and wrapped with braised pork belly which are tasty and not greasy. I enjoy the bun which are pretty thin compared to those factory made one. You will find a balance between the pork belly and bun.

Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun

These chee cheong fun are thinner and shorter with a tasty char siew fillings. Their sauce is pretty unique as you would normally get the sweet soya sauce drizzled over the chee cheong fun at other dim sum stores. I have yet to make out what this sauce is since I was engrossed in enjoying my dim sum breakfast which is So Good!

Only managed to order 6 dishes and I am already so full even the husband sharing with me. I guess I’d have the excuse to visit them more frequently to try out their extensive menu of dim sum!!
