上海人家 Shanghai Ren Jia (SG)

Pan fried bao 生煎包

We had a post Chienese New Year meal meet up and thought to give off-city eats a try.

This fluffy pan fried buns (which were steamed before hand) enveloped rice wine infused minced meat.

A homey tasting platter.

The bun was packed with flavourful minced meat and juice.

The owner was friendly and passionate about their homecook dishes, where everything is prepared from scratched.

Even though the noodles were not made in house, he handpicked the type of flour which goes into making the noodles which are free of any preservatives or funky additives.

He shared with us that the wife helms the kitchen, and she never received any culinary training.

Every taste and texture were made with deliciousness in mind to share with the fellow Singaporeans.

Shanghai springrolls 春卷

The inside of the cripsy thin pastry skin was all vegetarian, juicy too.

Braised beef noodles 牛肉面

The braised beef cubes were not a lot but they packed a punch of flavour, the cubes had quite some heat surprisingly.

The soup itself was really wholesome, reminds me of mother’s ABC soup (Luo Song Tang 罗宋汤).

Stir fried dou miao 炒豆苗

These greens were tender not overcooked, packed some wok hei and most importantly, they were not oily at all!

Xiao long baos! 小笼包

These xiao long baos were good, not as sophisticated as the Ding Tai Fung but filling was juicy and flavoursome.

Braised pork belly 上海梅菜扣肉

Pork lovers will love this presentation and mantou to go with the sweetich succulent braised pork belly slivers.

Pillowy steamed mantou to sandwich the pork belly slices…

Stir fried long beans 炒四季豆

Crunchy and quite piquant stir fried chopped beans, well done!

Drunken chicken 上海醉鸡

This was an appetiser, the rice wine marinade was intense to go with the cold poached chicken.

Pumpkin cakes – so good!

This homemade dessert came also highly recommended by the owner/manager on the ground.

And we loved the pumpkin puree within and mashed red bean centre, the outside was fried to perfect crispiness.

We were impressed with the dishes that were fairly well executed coming from a passionate homecook.

Overall, this family run restaurant truly deserves a visit and a revisit if you live not too far away.

We tried out almost all the recommended dishes on the menu, there were 2 – 3 dishes un-captured here.

Turned out to be S$20 per person.

Address: 151, Ang Mo Kio Ave 5 #01-3046, S560151 (A few stops on bus from AMK Hub)
