Undecided for dinner, we braved our courage for a spicy mala fish, something we wouldn’t normally pick. Not being a fan of mala, we opted for less spicy to try their Unique sauce grilled fish. As anticipated, the fish came covered with heaps of chilli and a mala-oil looking sauce. Frankly, the sea bass we picked was tasty, flavoured with the sauce that had a mix of spicy, sweet, sour and fragrance from some of the little spices in it. Particularly, the fresh, big cut onions were delicious with the sauce. So just a little touch from that was good, while we couldn’t take in too much of it thinking of the mala and the oil. There was option to add ingredients and we were happy with the fried luncheon meat we added that went well with the dish. We also had their 拉麵 in 酸辣湯that tasted so mild compared to the grilled fish sauce. This was a good adventure, though their food obviously would appeal much more to those who enjoy mala kinda spicy food.

Very Fresh Fish Whole grilled fish for a decent price. Much cheaper than those chinese restaurants you to for zi char. The fish is fresh and sauce is nice and savoury. Garoupa cost $42. Optional to add on other sides to the fish. Atmosphere of the restaurant is nice and cosy, not overly smoky as well.
Szechuan Spicy Diced Chicken from Riverside Grilled Fish (@riversidegrilledfishsg). The teasingly numb chicken cubes had the firm, generous chunkiness of a Gold's Gym senior coach, almost dispensing with the requirement of the usual crispy batter. In any case, one of the more happily-priced plates of spicy Sichuan chicken around. 3.9/5

Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao offers a great value for your money with delicious handmade Xiao Long Bao and noodles such as Sour & Spicy Noodle, Beef Noodles, Dumpling Noodles and Sour & Spicy Noodles (each priced at $2.50 – $4). Who doesn’t love a good dumpling? The Chinese couple running this stall makes thousands of delicious XLBs on a daily basis. The dumplings are only $0.60 per piece and have generous fillings of tasty and broth which is on the sweetish side. Add some vinegar and chilli for a better experience. You could also enjoy their Szechuan style Spicy Wantons ($5 for 10 pieces) and Pan-Fried Dumplings aka Guo Tie ($6 for 10 pieces). The Guo Tie had crisp outer layer and was very meaty, but I wished it was juicier on the inside. bit.ly/chinatownfoodcentre #DFDHawker
Probably One Of The Best Dumplings In Singapore Think you will only get bursts of soup from xiao long baos? Think again as this stall's wo tie (pan fried dumplings) ($6 for 10) have that same bursts of meat juices spilling out of the skin the moment you bite onto them. The chilli dumplings ($4.50 for 10) are really good as well, as the skin was silky smooth, the fillings were equally as flavourful, and the chilli vinegar sauce sure packed a punch. Such high quality dumplings sure brings me back to my holidays in China, and its great to know I can eat them here in my home country.
Xiao Long Bao($6 for 10pcs), Pan-fried Dumplings($6 For 10pcs), Dumplings ($5 For 10pcs) - Michelin Plate Managed to try this before the food centre is closed for 3 months renovations. I waited abt 30min, it’s definitely worth the queue. I love Xiao Long Bao and I think I can finish 20 XLB on my own.😂 The XLB skin is thin yet sturdy enough to hold the fillings in place. The XLB soup is sweet but I expected it to have more soup. It’s still pretty gd but Ding Tai Fung wins hand down. Selling at $6 for 10pcs, it’s a steal! The paper-thin crust of the pan-fried dumplings 锅贴 gave a really nice crisp. Each dumpling is filled with a generous amount of meat fillings. For a healthier version, you can order the 水饺, they have the same “feelings”. 😂 The Zha Jiang Mian was not bad, just a little bit soft, could be better if the noodles are more Q.
