We were unsure of what to have for dinner when we chanced upon a quirky looking place while at Rhodes one evening. Their name caught our attention.
Hm, dumpling for dinner? We approached the counter to have a quick look through the menu.
We liked their wide selection of noodles and dumplings, and not to mention their reasonable pricing. The dinner time crowd kept the kitchen busy and we were lucky to secure a table as someone was just leaving.
As XW is a soup person, she ordered a bowl of Shredded Pork with Chinese Pickles in Noodles Soup ($9.80). The bowl was almost dry, as the soup was flavoursome.
I opted for a bowl of Szechuan Style Noodles in Spicy Sauce with Beef Mince ($9.80) because I felt like something spicy. Mixed the ingredients together and I was a very happy young lady that evening. It was not too spicy and I liked the texture of the noodles. The portion was just right, too.
You can't come to a dumpling bar and not order dumplings, right? We ordered 5-piece serve of Shao Long Bao or Steamed Shanghai Mini Pork Soup Dumplings ($5.80) and were pleasantly surprised. Lots of juice inside the dumplings, full of flavour and had the right level of moist.
We will come here again to try other things on their menu (that is if we do not end up dining at IKEA).
