揾到食 Wen Dao Shi - 点心 Dim Sum

Hubby brought me to dim sum breakfast at 126 Sims Ave. The interesting thing is... The unit number, 126 and the signage, 揾到食, they rhymes. I asked hubby was it a coincidence or did they purposely find this shop space. And 揾到食 in cantonese "wen dou sek", means "found a place to eat".

We had came here before, a few years back, and I'm not sure why, but this time, it feels happy to eat here, like I had found a huge treasure.

The shop front. The seatings are inside.

皮蛋粥 Century egg porridge [$3.00] - with chicken floss. The porridge is thick and nice. Very filling. So if you want to try more of the dim sum, order one to share.

香港叉烧包 Hong Kong Char Siew Bao [$3.50] - soft textured buns. The traditional way of making dim sum buns. Filled with delicious char siew.

虾饺 Prawn Dumpling [$3.30] - Dumplings filled with big fresh prawns. Love the prawns. But thinking the skin can be better? It's thin but too thin, as the fillings broke out of the skin even before taking it near to my mouth.

烧卖王 Siew Mai King [$4.50] - An upgraded version of siew mai. And it's yummilicious. Smooth textured pork and prawns. The normal ones costs $2.80. I wonder what's the difference though.. More prawns maybe?

鲜竹卷 Bamboo rolls [$4.30] - Bamboo shoots wrapped in toufu skin. Very crunchy, very fresh.

Seems like they have a new outlet at Serangoon Road (Address: 1086 Serangoon Road Singapore 328187)

This place has been in Singapore for many years, (Read ieatishootipost's 2008 blogpost) and I'm glad that the food standard is kept to its best. And I don't have to queue 3 hours =P

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.


Here's the bus schedule.


We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.



The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.


I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.


You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.


I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.


 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.


The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.


There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
