Nanxiang at The Curve

Filed under: Eating Out — tanling @ 4:53 pm


Nanxiang Mantou Dian is a famous 1900 Shanghai steam dumpling which business is still brisk till this day at the original shop. I tried Nanxiang outlet at Bugis Junction which I’m afraid is disappointing and long queue.

Nanxiang best selling steam dumpling should be enjoy slowly while it is still steaming hot. Avoid lip or tongue burn by sipping a little at a time – the dumpling’s contained hot soup, thru the opening of on top.

Nanxiang at The Curve is pricey RM77+ for 2 persons, not much filling-more like snack portion. I like the stir fry rice cake though some may find it a little salty. The serving is quite small.

MIL Homemade Chinese Buns

Filed under: Kitchen — tanling @ 12:07 pm


It has been a while MIL’s buns sitting inside my fridge. So ‘sayang’ to gobble them up. MIL bun wrapping skills has improved. It used to be quite gross looking. I finally made up my mind to steam all and eat with my 3 boyfriends. Taste damn good with Aik Cheong’s ‘kopi O kosong’ on a quiet Sunday afternoon.

Assorted Potato Salad

Filed under: Kitchen — tanling @ 3:26 pm


For mental note, today I bought 2 medium purple potatoes, 1 large pink potato, 3 new potatoes and 1 local sweet potato. Cleaned and steamed all potatoes together till soft but not mushy. While they were still hot, peeled off the skin. Break all hot potatoes by hand into bite size. Put all onto a plate. Squeeze some japanese mayonaise and sprinkle generous amount of finely cut spring onion. Mix and enjoy.
