Fried Dumpling w/ Leek & Shrimp

$7.80 · 17 Reviews

Even though this is one of their signatures, it fell short of our expectations. I wished I could taste more of the seafood sweetness since the egg white kind of overpowered everything…

Nevertheless, I love their XLB, Fried Dumplings, Chive Egg Pancake & JJM!😋

Specifically travelled here for their xiao long bao and fried dumplings with leek & shrimp but ended up having other favourite items 😂

Ordered the xiao long bao ($5.80 for 5pcs), fried dumplings with leek & shrimp($8.80), Beijing styled noodles with soybean pasta ($6.80), steamed chicken with chilli sauce and kelp side dish.

Xiao Long Bao was flavourful, and skin was relatively thin yet chewy. The fried dumplings with leek & shrimp had a layer of crisp to it and the skin was chewy too, but seemed overwhelming after having quite a few. Kelp side dish was good in balancing out the jelak-ness of the other dishes.

My favourite two were the Beijing styled noodles with soybean pasta and steamed chicken with chilli sauce. The noodle texture was chewy and really good while the chicken was cold and appetising.

Price point was really good too, will be back to try other items in their menu!

The dish we preferred most for our meal here though still average. The fried dumplings had a pretty juicy filling of pork and shrimps. The slightly crisp base was thin and not too greasy. I would have liked it fried a little bit longer for a better crunch.

Hand in Hand has been around since 2004, bringing authentic northern Chinese cuisine to Singapore. Everything is hand-made and fresh, and prices are very reasonable too!

Pictured is the deliciously juicy and crispy fried dumplings with shrimp and leek ($7.80++/8pcs). Really like this dish because of the thin golden crunch at the base. It resembles how some Japanese gyoza are presented but theirs is a ‘netted’ structure which makes it much airier, crunchier and not as filling! Highly recommend this dish 😋

Fried Dumplings($8.80) - 8.25/10 crust is crispy, skin has chewy texture and porky flavor. Portion of Chives and meat are in good amount,really good tasting dumplings. Pork oil is infused into the dumplings. With Soy Sauce and ginger,it is delicioux. There were prawns in there too,what a pleasant surprise!

Thin and beautifully crisp, the Fried Dumplings with Leek, Pork and Shrimp ($7.80) were a tad greasy in my opinion yet oh-so-good! The minced meat filling being both savoury and fragrant. Love that you get the satisfying crackle from the lattice and the silky smooth skin of the dumplings. The hint of sweetness from the plump chunks of shrimps as you bit into the juicy packages were icing on the cake. Do note to eat it while it’s hot.

The skin was not too thick and the base achieved the golden ratio of airiness and crispiness.
The fillings (pork, leek and shrimp) were fresh and not overly oily like much of traditional Chinese food, and came together for a juicy serving of umami. They were also not stingy with the fillings.
Would definitely go back for more of these babies.

Some hit some misses.
Try the crab meat egg white with broccoli, pan fried dumpling, steam xiao Long bao and 水煮鱼。
Forget about trying the 土豆丝 and 干锅鸡。
Will return again to try more dishes!

We went there on a Tuesday evening and was shocked to see that the restaurant was packed and big groups were told that they might not be able to get a table at all. Luckily for us, as it’s just the two of us, we were ushered to an outdoor table. Thanks to the recommendation by @veronicaphua, I immediately pointed to the Fried Dumplings ($7.80) even before flipping through the entire menu. As everything is handmade and made-to-order, the dumplings took quite sometime to arrive but it was wiped clean within minutes. The dumpling skin was pan fried till crispy while the stuffing of leek, pork and fresh shrimp provided a burst of flavours (juices were literally bursting out). Perhaps to keep the dumplings in place, the Chef creates a crispy layer of batter at the bottom which further adds to the texture from each bite.
