Chinatown - xiao long bao

Comfort food with friends makes for a great dinner.

This is a dumpling stall at the Chinatown hawker centre (#02-135) that surfaced in more recent years going by my google search using the keywords Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao.

Freshly made and steaming xiao long bao and hong you cha shou (Szechuan spicy wanton in generous dose of vinegar).

We also shared fried noodles, fried bee hoon, porridge and sheng-yu.

Paired with reasonably-priced fruit juices. Mine was starfruit juice ($1.50).

Other good food to try:
- Heng Ji Chicken Rice. It's near to the dumpling stall. Many diners would order the steamed chicken meat (no rice) and add on dishes from other stalls to complete their meal.
- Shanghai Chee cheong fun (it was closed when we were there at dinnertime)
- claypot rice (#02-198/9) (Lian He Ben Ji Claypot Rice)
