Nanxiang Xiao Long Bao (SG)

Zha Jiang Mian S$7.90++

The mian (noodle) was just nice, just a little bit over al dente biting point. Perfect for older generation who prefer lesser bite to their noodle.
The minced meat gravy topping was ok. Somewhat flavourful.
A bit more of the the gravy would be better.

Braised Beef Brisket Noodle S$9.8++

First time for me seeing a beef brisket noodle served separately like the one here.
The waitress assured that this was my order, it was served in such way because some customers do not like their broth oily.

So the left bowl is the normal ‘ching tang’ (pork stock flavoured soup with noodle), then, the right side of braised beef was gradually added to the
clear broth as you eat along, that’s my way anyway.

Braised beef itself was flavourful, tender and I love the beef tendons chunks thrown in. Collagen abound :)

Walnut & Black Sesame Pastries S$3.8++

We had this so-called dessert. The pastry was flaky, and the filling was really tasty. I think there were small lardons inside.

Crabmeat & Pork Xiao Long Bao S$9.90++

We compared this set of xiao long bao with the Din Tai Fung’s version naturally.
I thought the filling and stock in Nan XIang’s xiao long baos were more robust and richer.
A must-try in my opinion.

A nice Shanghainese fare shall we say. All in all, I will be back here to try other xiao long bao flavours.
