One-two-six (Geylang Dim Sum)


My supper buddy and I went to Geylang to eat the Dim Sum at One-two-six (126), which is along SIms Avenue. This is the place where we always go for supper after mahjong sessions two summers ago, coz it opens right into the night, and it features very hearty fare, everything (all the morsels) to go well with their fabulous chilli. And it's really quite an institution and an eye opener - eveyrthing is the same, from the barley served in tupperwares (like a bowl) to the dimsum and the stuffy ambience. heh.
But don't expect quality Crystal Jade food here - the tim sum here is hearty, homely, but not very exquisite or refined, to put it. and the fried stuff is better. recommended are the "xia juan" (prawn rolls) which feature prawns encased in beancurd skin and fried to a crisp; the chee chong fun was good as well (with prawns) - quite smooth; the prawn rolls (different from the xia juan) was not bad as well, if oily; my friend liked the fan choy; however the wo-tie was a let down - it was not like the wo-ties that i'd like, but was really just some fried batter with pork inside. the siew-mai was not bad while the har-gow could be better. Oh well. so you're better off eating the fried things and dipping everything into the wonderful chilli sauce. Which always saves the day.

Dim sum: 6.5/10
