Steamed Glutinous Rice with Pork

$13.80 · 12 Reviews

Nanjing Impressions is a popular restaurant chain based in Nanjing but with outlets all over China. They specialize in Huaiyang cuisine and in particular Jingling (Nanjing) dishes.

Stepping into Nanjing Impressions is as if you have stepped a few hundred years into the past into a traditional inn (客栈). They have paper lanterns hanging in the air and you seat at dark wooden tables and benches. There is also a pavillion where you get to enjoy traditional musical performances.

Huaiyang cuisine centres around meticulous stewing, braising and careful steaming over a low fire. 金牌蜜汁藕 (or caramelised lotus roots), one of Nanjing Impressions' signature dishes, is a fine example of this. The crunchy lotus roots are stuffed with soft fluffy glutinous rice and coated with a delectable sweet sauce made from reducing pear juice. Simple yet superb.

Impressed by how duck dumplings are being crafted the same like xlb with the oozing component... So flavourful, no hesitation for a 2nd basket... Tried the rest of the order dishes...is good but can never be compared with the duck dumplings 😂

This was like the boozy version of tangyuan in red bean paste! Could really taste the Chinese wine. Unusual and I quite enjoyed it.

We found this fairly ordinary, though the rice was soft and the texture was enjoyable.

Glutinous Rice With Pork Belly $9
Love the texture and stickiness of this glutinous rice. Very flavourful rice, nice balance between sticky and gummy. The meat adds a nice texture and chewiness to the dish. Definitely my favorite dish of the night.

Surprisingly good food by Nanjing Impressions. Other than it was a little salty for our Singaporean taste bud which would be best with their steamy white rice.

I felt the must order dish would be their braised duck, braised trotter and glutinous rice. .
|
Their duck wasn’t tough and packed with the braised sauce. Totally not fatty and perfectly chopped up. .
|
Braised trotter was more than good. Especially the side sauce was sichuan pepper. Tongue numbing taste which countered nicely with the fatty trotter. If there was be some cucumber to refresh the taste, it would be even better. .
|
The glutinous rice soaked up all the sauce from the braised pork belly and made the every grain of the rice so fragrant. If the steam basket was warmed up before serving, it will be the best dish of the day. .

Steamed Glutinous Rice with Pork ($16.80)

This signature from @nanjingimpressions is the bomb 💣! The glutinous rice is seasoned and soaked then placed in a bowl lined with pork belly to achieve this foodporn result. Glistening rice revealing just the tip of pork belly slices. When you eat into this, you will find the pork meat oh-so-tender and shiok while the rice is stickier than usual and super flavourful!

江米扣肉。It's a classic dish from Jiang Nan. Hand-picked glutinous rice seasoned and soaked before placed in a bowl lined with slices of pork belly, and steamed for 3 hours in the steamer. Tbh, both pork and rice literally blended together as one - and melts in the mouth. 😍😍😍
