126 DimSum @ Geylang, 126 Sim Avenue

Demona's tummy has been growling for MEAT MEAT MEAT on a Wednesday night after Church service.... We have not been having much dimsum lately as Sunday morning has now been dedicated to the Lord. Sensing her hunger for meaty prey like a cold blooded viper, I quickly drove down to Geylang Rd for a quick meaty fix at 126 Dim Sum @ 126 Sims Avenue.CSP@3.20SGD: The CSP is normal. Sweetish charsiew paste with equal porportion of fats and lean meat. The bun is a tad thick..Not fantastic. At the same time, the fillings were used in many of their dimsum as well.. Boring.Fried CheeChongFun@3.50SGD: Fried cheechongfun filled with the exact fillings of CSP. Crispy but a tad too oily. A sinful grease bomb but nothing to shout about it.Xiao Long Bao@3.00sgd: I'm not too sure if this qualifies as XLB. Shaped more like a frozen dumpling found in NTUC and lacking of much elasticity. No juice/soup within the XLB. The skin were not soft and rather too thick. Looks not appealing as well. Not good.Pork Ribs With Bean Paste@2.50SGD: This was at least average and not expensive. Greasy pork ribs with black beans and tons of oil.... Good after a beer binge!

Chilli@ Abit overly sweet without much spicy kick in it. Chilli price has gone up or is this Singapore palate preference for sweet chili?
Total Bill@12.60SGD for 4 dishes

Verdict: This stall is hugely popular with late night crowds, especially those post clubbing/drinking customers. And there is no reason for anybody to come here unless you are drunk and intoxicated. Food here is below average, ultra greasy, coarse and not value for money. So, come here if you need some grease bomb and enjoy rowdy noisy crowd. Else, Geylang offers much better quality and value food besides 126 Dim Sum.
