揾到食 Wen Dao Shi / Wen Dou Sek / 126

The bf and I had a late dinner at 揾到食 Wen Dao Shi or Wen Dou Sek, while some others know it as 126 due to it's address at 126 Sims Ave.

The bf, being familiar with the bustling eatery, automatically plonked himself down onto one of the empty seats by the roadside and started flipping the menu to order..
The menu here is in Mandarin, so it helps that there are pictures. Diners are given a piece of plain paper and a pencil, so just write down the item number and pass the paper to one of the waiters/waitresses who's zooming past. 

Pictured above is the lemon sugarcane juice ($2). It was unusual to see that the drinks were being served in takeaway containers rather than cups.

Clockwise L to R: Siu Mai, Har Gao, Pork Porridge, Prawn Chee Cheong Fun., Steamed Pork Ribs
The Siew Mai ($2.50), Har Gao ($3.20) and Pork Ribs were nothing to shout about but on the other hand, the porridge and chee cheong fun were yummy!

The porridge was smooth, thick and creamy. The folks at the eatery were really generous with the pork toppings and the green onions added the finishing touches to this simple dish. Best thing - it's served piping hot, suitable for the rainy weather we're having now.

As for the Chee Cheong Fun ($3.50), it's served with a gooey brown sauce that is slightly sweet, very much different from the light soya sauce that is typical. The rice rolls themselves are silky ribbons that's firm without being overly chewy. 

Other dish worthy of mention is the Fried Intestines ($6). I'm usually not an innards kind of girl but I found the fried intestines really appetizing. There's no stinky smell and it's fried to a lovely golden color. You can even hear the crunch when you bite into a piece.

The eatery is opened 24 hours so it's good for night-owls looking for a late night snack.
