Wang Ji Shanghai Xian Long Bao (王记上海小笼包 ) @ Old Airport Road
Warning! The lady’s handling the cashier and orders has a bad attitude, cocky and shows a black face when inquired about the status of the order. Such a bad attitude cannot be cordoned and we decided to boycott the stall from now on. Sorry Wang Ji we got to drop your stars because of the unacceptable poor service and manners demonstrated.
We are somehow become a regular patron to the stall whenever we visit the food centre. It is not easy to find a stall that able to do well in Xian Long Bao, pan-fried dumpling and steamed dumpling, however, Wang Ji Shanghai Xian Long Bao somehow impressed us on those delicacies.
Be it Xiang Long Bao, pan-fried dumpling or steamed dumpling, the paper thin wrap and highly resilient skin, juiciness and tastefulness of the contents with the freshness very much decide the superiority of the food. We are glad to say that Wang Ji Shanghai Xian Long Bao has demonstrated the skills in making those products a success.
Xiao Long Bao $3.5 For 5 Pieces
The wrap or skin was thin enough to hold the juices intact when lifted by the chopstick, a pop into the mouth was instantly feeling the burst of the wrap, the sweet and flavourful juices flooded the month was simply satisfying with its tenderly and delectable meat.
Pan-Fried Dumpling $7 For 10 Pieces / $4 For 5 Pieces
The pan-fried dumpling was not at all lost out to the Xian Long Bao, the meat was nicely seasoned to heighten the flavour and at the same time retained much of the juices, skin was chewy but not rubbery.
Steamed Chive And Meat Dumpling $4 For 10 Pieces
The pork and chive filling was pleasantly good with the soft and chewy skins leave us a good impression with the dish.
Wang Ji Shanghai Xian Long Bao Verdict :
If you are looking for some reasonably good Xian Long Bao, pan-fried dumpling or steamed dumpling, Wang Ji Shanghai Xian Long BaoÂ is certainly a good choice. However, the attitude and service level is one of the worst we even encountered so far. No matter how good is the food, Wang Ji will not garner our support any more.
