You Peng Noodle Dumpling House @ Beauty World Food Centre - Value For Money Xiao Long Bao, $7 For 10 Pieces

You Peng Noodle Dumpling House is located on the fourth floor of Beauty World Food Centre. The stall sells a variety of dumplings and noodles here. In my recent visit, I decided to patron the stall and try their Shanghai Fresh Meat Juicy Steamed Bun or more commonly just known as Xiao Long Bao.

A set of the Shanghai Fresh Meat Juicy Steamed Bun ($7 for 1 set) comes with 10 pieces of the piping hot xiao long bao.

The first thing I did is to pick up the xiao long bao on its tip using my pair of chopsticks. The skin was rather thick but resilient. You probably can tell from the picture. It could also be the reason why the xiao long bao was able to hold quite a lot of the soup it in.

While the pork filling is quite substantial, it had a porky taste which threw the experience off. I ended up dunking the xiao long bao in the dipping vinegar sauce to mask the porky taste.

For a mere $7 to get 10 pieces of xiao long bao is quite a bargain. If care is taken in the preparation to better remove the porky taste of the filling, I would have enjoyed it more. Nevertheless, I would like to go back and try their other dumpling and noodle dishes on the menu for a more complete review of the stall.
