How was it?
Little J and I were craving dumplings, so we headed to Ashfield in search of some xiao long bao at Shanghai Night. The restaurant always seems to be busy with waitresses bustling about here and there.
Complimentary Tea (with the random advertisement on it!)
I just love the steamed dumplings here. There is pork mince and soup inside. I love how they pack the dumplings with pork mince, they certainly don't skimp on it. When you take a bite and the hot soup oozes out, your tastebuds will thank you! Mmm.. They make the dumplings in their restaurant, there is a man sitting in a booth in the back studiously folding dumplings!
(the steam was fogging up my camera!)
The round pancake was cut into five slices and it tasted quite like fried bread. It wasn't overly greasy, and it would have been great with a bowl of congee!
The lamb skewers were sprinkled with chilli powder. The meat was a little bit tough and chewy, but the addition of the chilli definitely gave the skewers a bit of a kick.
We were amazed that our order for a 'small' serve of dumplings, came out with a whole plate full! No complaints though, I love dumplings!
Shanghai Night is a definite favourite of mine. The food is always good (and cheap!), service is a little hit/miss but it all adds to the experience! Don't forget to order the xiao long bao (steamed dumplings) - they are amazing!
Dumpling cravings satisfied :)
