Shanghai Lao Lao 上海姥姥 – Xiao Long Baos

Shanghai Lao Lao is a small but modestly designed Shanghai bistro, where offers a narrow range of authentic Shanghainese dim sums and ramen noodles. For instance, the semi steamed buns have a goldenly seared bottom edges, with a preferably not-so-dense pork filling; whereas for the Lao Lao’s appetizer platter that includes 3 choices, I am thrilled about how they could serve it 5 minutes right after our orders are taken. The pork knuckles are so gelatinous and I enjoy the strong marination of wine. The next dish is such an egg porn to me. The egg presents a sharp smoky fragrance and an amazingly runny yolk. So as the smoked fish that has been glazed with my favourite five spices sauce. Surprisingly, their xiao long baos are the most impressive dishes of the night. The original ones are extremely soupy and has succulent minced pork within the thin wrappers. The crab roe versions are unbelievably scrumptious and rich in roe of crab and crab meat. I would definitely come back for their XLBs!
