A somewhat overdue post. Aiya! It always happened to me. Too Busy! I still have a few very overdue posts!
Dear and me finally have a chance to visit this Dim Sum place – 揾到食 at Sims Avenue. It’s somewhere near Geylang and the nearest MRT station is Aljunied. Dear had been to this place a few times already and I had been here once. This is my second visit!
We had the Sugarcane drink and they served all their drinks in those big containers, rather than cups or glasses. It seems like all these drinks were pre-prepared, stored in these containers and left to chill in their freezer.
We ordered 9 dishes, the fried dumpling, cha siew baos, siew mai, har gao, etc etc.
The fried dumplings were very nice. Crispy and it was hot when served to us. The filling of each dumpling was just nice, not overflowing, but just enough to feel that it is not empty.
We love the yam balls too! They were served hot, and the cha siew inside the yam balls tasted very good. At first I thought the yam ball was going to be big and filled with a lot of yam, but I was totally wrong. Too much yam will make the snack sucky and 揾到食 had ensured that the yam is of the right quantity.
The Cha Siew Chee Cheong Fun were somewhat different from what we used to have before in other stalls. The sauce was tasty and it gave me a feeling that it’s the improvised kind of chee cheong fun. I still prefer the traditional kind though. But I must confessed that the sauce and the chee cheong fun seem to mix very well and they gave a good taste.
The cha siew baos were great! The filling was sufficient, but I do find the puff alittle thick. I prefer those bao with very thin layer on the outside and lots of filling inside. :p
I love the har gao! The prawns were so fresh that I still must eat the last one even though I was very full already. As for the siew mai, I have no comments about them as they tasted very normal to me. Nothing to “wow” or complain about.
The pork ribs were very good! Both dear and me like the pork ribs very much! The taste is… erm, hard to describe, but they are so fragrant and the meat had absorbed the sauce in the process of steaming. They used alot of garlic and probably it was the reason why they smell so nice.
The chicken feet was a disappointment. We prefer those where the meat is easily detached from the bones. The meat was alittle too hard to our liking and I will not order this again for my next visit.
The lotus rice is so-so. Even though each mouthful of rice had some taste in them, but I am not quite satisfied with them. There’s a whole chunk of meat and one whole mushroom inside the rice, so its quite worth for the money. But I will also not order these for my next visit, it’s my personal preference lah.
Overall experience was nice. The food which we ordered was too much and we were both very full. :p
Here’s the address for this place and when you crave for some Dim Sum, try them next time!

Dar, this place has been ard for a very long time liao. Sad to say, the food u tried….. already drop standard. It was much much better 3-4 years back, and cheaper too. I guess this is what was reported in the papers recently. Old hawkers and good food is disappearing. New generation doesn’t want to learn from their elders, therefore good food is slowly disappearing…
Rmb how good was Melbon Seafood when we 1st tried it?……
Sad isn’t it?…
Dar, I think i deleted my comment which I input! how blur of me! Anyway, I was saying, ya i agree with you..no more good food in future le…how how how?
