S$5.50 xiaolongbao小笼包

went with wife to watch the movie “spectre” at gv grand on 7.11.2015.

quite boring really…the opposite of “the intern”, no engagement, no development, no tension/expectations/relationships/chemistry among the cardboard characters..no anything…

like i was telling a friend on facebook, as boring as terminator or a 1970s chinese kungfu movie…fight fight fight fight fight..nothing in between…

after movie, we a bit “sian” to go zion road food centre, anyway not much to eat there also (don’t think much of zion road char kuay teow even though it is PM’s favourite), & didn’t feel like driving elsewhere for makan, so went down one floor to crystal jade lamian xioalongbao for a quick bite…luckily just waited 5mins at around 9pm.

we ordered xiaolongbao小笼包, saliva chicken 口水鸡 & beef brisket noodles 牛腩面.

somehow this evening the same dishes didn’t seem as shiok as that at hollandv.

beef brisket noodles 牛腩面. the noodles were very good al dente & 爽口& the sauce & flavours were good too.

the briskets were quite tasty, but both the briskets & overall taste of the beef brisket noodles 牛腩面 was NOT as good as that at SICC, i think quite a bit NOT as good, not just marginally.

also both this beef brisket noodles 牛腩面 & SICC’s & in fact all the beef brisket noodles in singapore do not use the 崩沙腩 which i love in hong kong’s 牛腩面, the belly cuts they used in the hong kong beef brisket noodles.

they have layers of collagen 胶 made them very flavourful & gelatinous when braised.

these were the cut of briskets which my friend bought in chinatown market, which i also did after learning from her.

she brought her fabulous 清汤牛腩 to my place for a for a homecooked 16pax 17-course dinner on 26.8.2015.^^

you can see the soup inside the xiaolongbao小笼包. it was very tasty & flavourful as always, the skin thin & the fillings very tasty.

we ordered a second tray of xiaolongbao小笼包.

dinner was S$34nett for 2pax after DBS card 10% discounts.

somehow the food this evening just did not feel so shiok, don’t know why.
