Heartland Hawkers Sunday News Flash Part II: Guo Tie ($8) and Xiao Long Bao ($4). Freshly handmade on the spot. The pot stickers were crispy and crusty on the outside with chewy skins encasing a moist juicy filling of well-marinated pork and koo chye (韭菜）。
The chef gave such a generous portion, I had to da bao the remaining ones and believe it or not, after 2.5 hours, the skins were still slightly crisp and tender chewy.
What I super like about these dumplings is that there isn’t any strong meat odour because the meat has been beautifully marinated.
The only minus point is the ginger strips aren’t very finely cut and weren’t peeled before being shredded.
The Xiao Long Bao were surprisingly more than decent! Paying just $4 for these delicate dumplings, I felt quite smug eating them. The skin isn’t as delicate, but it’s fairly thin and translucent. The skin is also slightly chewy, tender and holds up well when picked up with chopsticks. Absolutely juicy with the tasty soup wrapped within each little round dumpling with the pleated seal at the top.
Good value for money. The stall makes its own la mian by hand. I didn’t try any though. Guo Tie certainly worth a try.
