One One Cafe

a friend staying around the area actually recommended me this place and since then, I’ve found myself returning a couple of times to try their other offerings. it’s quite a cosy, neighbourhood type of dim sum restaurant, not too different from A little dim sum place.

my favourite thing to have here is definitely the fried radish cake. crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, it tastes absolutely sublime. bits of meat/sausages have been added into the radish mix, which really elevates the taste of this humble and simple cake.

Teochew Dumplings

Teochew Dumplings (潮州粉餜). The translucent skin shows such promise of the filling inside. The filling is slightly sticky, with meat, peanuts, parsley, mushrooms, bamboo shoots and some other ingredients. It was different from what i’m use to, but tasty all the same.

Shanghai Buns. Meat filling inside. No surprises with this. Tasted ok only.

Prawn Cheong Fun (虾肠粉). Quite nice even if the ass-kicking chilli oil was missing.

Xiao Long Bao (小笼包). See the soup pooled at the bottom of the dumpling? Best taken as soon as served.

Steamed Ribs

Steamed Pork Ribs.

Spinach Dumplings

Spinach Dumplings. I wasn’t too taken with this despite the generous filling.

Stir Fried Chee Cheong Fun

Stir Fried Chee Cheong Fun in XO Sauce. Now this is something new for me. Instead of using radish cake cubes, rice roll cubes are used. And it tastes quite delicious too! Thanks to the XO sauce, it has a hint of spiciness and is very aromatic.


Dan Dan Noodles (担担面). Their version here is of a slightly spicy soup and liberal amounts of ground peanuts are used. Instead of being pure vegetarian, minced pork is also included, along with some deep fried fish. Fine emperor noodles are used and even though I can’t really describe the taste of the soup, this is one dish that has won me over.

Or Nee (芋泥), a Teochew style Yam dessert. This is very rich but so very good. Served with a coconut milk based dip, the taste is enhanced with just a little of the accompanying dip.

Overall the food here is above average even if choice is somewhat limited in comparison to one of those dim sum restaurants outside. However I feel I am still spoilt for choice as I would only try a few others apart from having my usual regulars. I also think that prices are quite reasonable as this meal came up to about RM50 for 3. Service can be a little slow here as they’re a little shorthanded so this is a place you must have time to dine at. Good for weekend brunches, imho.

  1. great photos! wow.. rice roll cubes huh? how does that taste/feel different from the radish?

    epicuriousgirl says: the rice roll tastes smoother, but can be quite thick so the flavour doesn’t reach the middle. the radish, although stickier, tastes more flavourful imho.
