Wen Dao Shi (搵到食) @ Sims Aveune

When Charlene told me about this place, I tried to look up on the web and found several results. Some sites refer this place as "Wen Dao Shi" while others called it "126 Dim Sum". After piecing the different information, I realized they are referring to the same place.

Actually I have been wondering why the Dim Sum place is called Wen Dao Shi (搵到食), it sounds quite funny in Chinese. My partner pointed out that it is actually pronounced as "Wan Dou Sek" in Cantonese, meaning found a place to eat. Coincidentally the stall is located at unit 126 which also sounds like "Wan Dou Sek" ("one two six").

The Egg Tart was not the flaky crust type. It has a very glossy and shiny surface. The custard was soft but rather average. I have eaten better one.

The Prawn Dumplings were big and packed fully with ingredients. There were prawn, mushroom and minced meat.

The Char Siew Rice Roll here was quite different. The rice roll was thicker in texture and came with a special sauce that was unique and nice.

The Fried Pork Intestines looked like those Hainanese pork chop in a glance. They were thin and crispy. For people who dislikes innards, the Fried Pork Intestines were not smelly at all.

I have eaten Enoki Mushroom wrapped with Beef slice but not Lean Meat before. It was my first time trying the combination and I love it.

The Kong Ba Pau is another unique offering at Wen Dao Shi. The Kong Ba Pau was rolled into bite size rectangluar shape bun which I can easily finish with one bite. Lean meat was used for the Kong Ba Pau.

The highlight has to be the White Pepper Crab Beehoon. According to Maureen, this dish used to be only available at night and now it is also available for lunch. The beehoon was very flavourful infused with the crab and white pepper flavours and aroma.
