There are reviews from bloggers' blogs about the famous and colourful xiao long bao. Finally got the chance to try. We headed over for dinner @ ION Orchard on Sunday. It was a long queue when we headed over for dinner. So we had to wait for a while before we managed to get a seat.
A must try signature dynasty dumplings S$13.80 for 8pcs.Each colour of dumplings bring out different flavors. From top, orange for crab roe, green for ginseng, white for classic,pink for szechuan, peach for foie grass,middle black for black truffle, yellow for cheese and lilac for garlic.There were served pipping hot clear broth. The taste wise is quite innovative and the skin is very thin. There is a little chewiness in the skin's texture. Overall is quite refreshing and taste is pretty alright but i won't queue and wait to have this.
Steamed Chive Dumplings in 6 pieces @ S$4.80
This dumplings' skin is slightly thick than the xiao long bao. The taste wise is fine and the fillings are quite rich.
My pick of that day: La Mian in Signature Pork Bone soup and Deep fried Pork Rib S$11.80.
It was surprisingly good for me especially deep fried pork rib. It was nicely deep fried pork rib. The softness of meat texture attracts my taste bud. The noodle's texture is springy and the soup base is compatible with the noodle.
La Mian in Signature Bone Soup with Deep fried Chicken Chop S$9.80.
The Deep fried chicken chop is served separately.The soup base is same as mine and the taste was pretty alright as well.
La Mian with Poached Marble Beef Style in szechuan style @ S$12.80
The soup base is extremely spicy and we cannot take it. I think it will be a good choice for spicy lover.
La Mian with shredded pork in sze chuan style and signature bone soup @ S$8.00
No much comment on this dish as all the La Mian soup base is the same.
Overall taste is pretty ok.
La Mian with Sliced Pork with signature pork base soup
The slice pork is thin and goes well with the compatible soup base.
Chilled Slice Pork with special sauce and minced garlic @ S$7.80
Love this dish. It is my favourite dish.
It is very appetizing and it goes well with the sauce.
Braised Pork Belly @ S$13.80
This is extremely rich with the fats and was well braised.
Love the texture of the pork belly soft and tender. The vegetables are appetizing as well.
Overall the service staffs are prompt and efficient. The servings were very fast and less than 20 minutes. So i believe the turnover sales for the restaurant is quite good. It's a decent place for dining. However i think i will not queue if the queue is long.
