Shanghainese Dumplings with Lobster Filling

It’s Xiao Long Bao which never ceases to please me! Thin and translucent skin encasing the warm savory broth moistening the patty of minced lobster meat. The natural sweetness from the king of crustacean conquered my palate and sent my brain into “food orgasm”!

 

Lobster Meat with Ginger & Spring Onion

Chunks of succulent lobster meat was lightly stir fried with lots of gingers & spring onions, the flavor was mild and showcased the sweetness from the lobster itself. I always has impression that lobster meat is tough and coarse but this definitely not, the juicy and tender meat was so delectable and I can’t resist to have a few helpings 😛

 

Spice Salted Lobster Head and Claws

The head and claws are not wasted too, prepared with moreish spice salted style and I saw everyone licking the shell clean :p

 

Fried La Mian with Lobster Tail

Although the lobster meat was the main actor here but the La Mian (Hand Pulled Noodle) as co-actor definitely manage to steal the limelight! The al-dente texture noodles were well absorbed the soy sauce flavor, make every strand was slurpilicious!

 

Double boiled Longan with Snow Fungus

I felt so refreshing and nourished by just looking at the brimming ingredients!

Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Sliced Abalone

Soft and flavorful from the ingredients, all is truly unique and features its own flavors and textures harmonically! Being told by Master Chef Li a new method to savor this dumpling by dipping it with SUGAR! We were skeptical just like you but try it,  definitely gave a new dimension to the traditional way to savor a dumpling!
