XLB & Spicy Wantons (#01-56, Shanghai La Mian Xiao Long Bao)

18 Reviews

Their noodles are pulled perfectly, cooked to perfection and their ZHA JIANG MIAN sauce is perfect. The cucumber give this dish an additional crunch and healthy factor. Be ready to queue if you’re here. Their XLBs, dumplings and other LA MIANS (I love the spicy sour noodles) are to die for. 🔥

Although a bit on the sweet side, it pairs nicely with the tangy vinegar. The fried dumplings (guotie) were also nicely crisp on the outside without being overly oily or greasy, and filled with a juicy mix of minced pork & chives.

💕Szechuan Spicy Noodle 💰$4.
💕Xiao Long Bao (7pcs) 💰$ 4.5.

For this price , the wanton and the xlb are really good. The skin is a bit thick, but they quite generous with the filling.
Preferred more vinegar on the sauce. And just skip the noodles. 📍Shanghai La Mian Xiao Long Bao.

Their Pan-fried Dumplings ($6) were also plump with a juicy pork and chive filling. Everything’s made to order, so you’ll need to wait a bit, but great for satisfying any soup dumpling cravings without having to queue (even longer) at DTF.

Possibly the best dumplings I’ve had in Singapore, with soft, thin, silky skins swathed around nuggets of finely minced pork. Doused in vinegar and chilli oil, topped off with dollops of Sichuan chilli paste, you’d expect a blast of sharp, piquant flavour, but the reality is hardly that. Rather, the sauce is surprisingly light and mildly spicy, with just a slight tang such that it complements instead of overpowering the taste of the meat itself.

A set of 10 of dumplings costs only $4.50. You’ll find the stall located in the middle row of Alexandra Village Food Centre.

I’m definitely willing to go back and brave the (well-deserved) queue to try their xiao long bao and guo tie!

These delicious pan fried dumplings filled with minced meat and Chinese chives, are packed with flavours and crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside.
I always takeaway a couple of dozen of their frozen dumplings 水饺 to stash in the fridge for quick and easy consumption on lazy evenings.

Prepared by the store daily, the skin was smooth and thin and the filling were generous. Going to come by more often to try their noodles and XLB

I must said I am super impressed by their XLB. $4.50 for a basket of 7. I am not going to patronise restaurants for XLB again after this discovery.

Shanghai Xiao Long Bao have been planting itself into the Singapore food scene. You can find them in restaurants (DTF) or at hawker center. There is one particular store that me and XBC frequently visit.

They are popular for their XLB, It has a good meat to skin ratio and the skin is not too thin until it will break if you lift it up. The broth was towards the sweet side, however, it was too sweet for our liking.

What we both love about this store is their steam dumpling. The meat to skin ratio was just nice. The skin is a little thicker than their XLB, but their meat tastes flavourful and tender. It has become a norm for us to order if we are there.

Overall, all their dumplings and XLB are handmade. You can even order a whole packet, from them if you have a party. Perhaps next time I will give their XLB a try again.
