Xiao Long Bao from the Dumpling Nazi
After reading that reader comment about the Dumpling Nazi's xiao long bao being one of the best in Singapore, I hopped on over to see for sure. I was a bit skeptical at first, especially since these didn't look that impressive from the outside. But after taking a bite, I can see where that statement had some merit. They were loaded with a lot of soup inside (and I mean, a lot!), and a decently tasty one at that. The stuffing itself was tender, and the skin wasn't as thick as it had looked. I wish there were a little more lard loaded into this thing for some extra kick though.
I don't know if I'd go so far as to say that it was the best in Singapore, but it was much better than I was expecting (and honestly, I can't really think of any other place around here whose xiao long bao totally knocked me off my feet either). I did rather enjoy those pan fried dumplings this second time here though. They reminded me a bit of the gyoza at Ohsho, albeit open-ended.
