Loved the crispy thin skirt around the generously-filled dumplings!! While the meat filling (which had scallions) was decently tasty and meaty, it could have been juicier for a more shiok experience. Still I wouldn’t mind having this again, and at this price point the queue is pretty justifiable.

It is impossible to resist these fresh silky smooth dumplings which are packed full of minced meat, swimming in a fragrant, slightly tongue numbing and yet tangy pool of Szechuan chilli oil sauce.

Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao serves a strangely addictive Szechuan dumplings in red chilli oil (红油抄手) which manages to be sweet, sour, spicy and savoury all at the same time.

You will definitely not regret an order (or two) of these delicious dumplings.

After a (long) 3 months break, Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao at Smith Street FC is finally back!

This stall is one of my go-to places for xiaolongbaos at non-DTF prices. I love that each dumpling packs a substantial amount of filling within a thin and smooth skin. Their XLBs contain much less "tang" as compared to DTF The soup stock is also robust and packs quite a meaty punch. It's a matter of personal preference but there might be some though who find it a little too "Xing" as compared to DTF's lighter and subtly sweet "tang" instead.

Judging from the queues, I think most diners don't mind!

Best XLBs ever!!! I’ve been going back for at least 4 times ever since my friend recommended it to me. It’s affordable, accessible and legit yummy. I’d totally choose this over DTF’s xlb any day – I do think it’s more flavourful than DTF.

Expect a queue if you’re going down on the weekends or weekdays (dinner time) but not to worry because they are very efficient so the queue moves v fast! All your orders are freshly made and honestly idk where else to find a better deal :’) please give it a try if you’re in the area!!

Hands down the best Hawker stall for Chinese dumplings in Singapore.

Debated over whether to get guo tie ($6.50 for 10) or xlb but got this in the end. Really love the meat filling because its so yummy!!!! The chives also add a nice fragrance and balances the taste v well! The skin is crispy (tho slightly oily but I'd say that's normal) so yUM!!!
