Dumpling King @ Alexandra Road

Not Din Tai Feng's standard but I like this Dumpling King's Zha Jiang Mian. Fried rice is nice but could be better if they are straight from the wok... no 'wok hei'.

The xiao long bao skin is too thick and not enough juice. Likely its frozen since they sell frozen dumplings to bring home. The kitchen is rather small and too clean... dun see flour misting air.

The boss was trying to be nice when he saw me photographing the food.

Boss: "you zhe me how kan mah?"
Me: "You!"
Boss:"e de shi hou, ke yi wang mei..."
Me: "wang mei zi ke!"
Boss & Me: "hahahaha...."
