Dumplings to feed the soul with.
The Crab meat xiao long bao 8pcs $12.70 are their signature soup dumplings. And rightfully so, they’re expertly pleated bao containing chunky crab pieces and pork mince in a gingery broth, the skin of the dumpling a good in between of thin yet sturdy. Gone in no time.
Fragrant crispy half duck served with steamed buns $37 is served with a side of flat mantou buns and hoisin sauce so you can make yourself a mini crispy duck sandwich.
For textural bliss have a serve of the Wok fried king prawns with salted egg yolk $29 you’ll only find plump prawns in a crisp coating of salted egg yolk batter. Crunchy coating and prawns that pop, oh yeah.
Best shared with a group of friends is the Rainbow beef – sweet and sour crispy beef $20.60 if you like your beef sliced into millimetre-sized strips, each strip coated in batter, deep fried and sweet. Then you’ll love this, just be sure to order with a side of white rice or something plain on the side, otherwise it becomes a little sickening.
I’d recommend passing on the Mango pudding $8 I don’t even mind the canned mangoes my gripe is that the pudding tastes thin in flavour, it’s like solidified milk.
