- Xiao Long Baos, $6.50/10 pcs

Ok

- Zha Jiang Mian, $3.50

chanced upon this stall at chinatown complex food centre and saw a really long queue.. only to find out it’s recommended by Michelin... must be good. indeed it was good!! Xiao long bao ($6.50 for 10 pieces, 2 baskets of 5) was freshly made. The skin was silky and smooth, meat was sweet and juicy. The dish that i like the most was the La Mian with fried bean sauce ($3.50). Pan Fried dumpling/ Guo tie ($6.50 for 10 pieces), there’s chives in it so not my thing haha prefer the xiao long bao. Where to find such high standard food at this pricing? Definitely worth trying, Do check out!

锅贴 aka pot stickers are plump and juicy with minced pork and chives.

Handmade la mian with handmade dumplings from scratch - what could be better? The meat within the dumplings tasted fresh, and I like the slightly QQ texture of the noodles.

First of all, these are the most affordable dumplings I've seen in a long time ($6.50 for 10 XLBs/guo ties). The long queue attested to the popularity of this humble hawker stall, where the dumplings were freshly made to order, boiled and fried right in front of the customer.

The guo ties were the highlight of our dumpling feast. A generous squirt of juice hit my palate as I bit into the plump, pillowy dumpling. The meat to skin ratio was perfect (I prefer a slightly thicker skin) and the filling itself was a flavorful pork mince with crunchy bits of green onion inside. I loved how the dumpling was piping hot and crispy on the bottom; evidently a lot of skill and care had gone into making each dumpling.

The XLBs were delicious too, not as good as Din Tai Fung's but definitely with the price I cannot complain. The dumpling itself was quite tiny and not the bulging, steaming package I believe XLBs should be. And the skin was definitely a little too thick for my liking. Yet the soup was plentiful and there was a generous amount of pork filling within.

Altogether definitely worth the wait for those amazing, absolutely value-for-money guoties. It certainly beats any restaurant guo ties and I will definitely be hitting this place to satisfy those dumpling cravings in the future.

8/10

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.
