#752 - Jing Hua Restaurant

Chanced upon an article on the Internet that says Jing Hua Restaurant serves $1 xiaolongbao so I jio-ed my cousin together with our mums one day when we went to change money for our Taiwan trip in December.

GPS told me it was an 8 minutes walk from Chinatown but somehow we ended up taking more than that. Maps wasn't working well for me.... And ended up we realised that it was nearer to Tanjong Pagar like at the Duxton Road area and we could see the Pinnacle@Duxton too!
The place was not very prominent and in a small shophouse. Cash only too. Let's move on to the food.

On another note, no price list because I lost the receipt. Pretty sure it's somewhere in my room... Heh.

All of us find it pretty normal. I like the noodles though.

Pan-fried Dumplings
Probably the best out of those we ordered! It was crispy at one side and soft on the other. When you bite onto it, the soup juice will flow out. A bit like pan fried xlbs. 赞! Must order this if you eat there. Lolol 赞 gives me the taiwanese vibes.

Chinese Pizza
Similar fillings to the gyozas just that the crust is different. Quite fragrant, best eaten hot! I like that there are chives in the filling.

The apparent star for its low cost compared to other xlb-selling places. BUT it was such a letdown. 

The xlbs' soup base was like gamey-tasting and not flavourful at all? Which is damn weird because the dumplings had the typical xlbs' soup base taste... The dumplings totally stole their limelight man. Cheap no use, cheap must nice also hahahaha.

Red Bean Paste Pancake 
This was good too! It was very fragrant w the seasame seeds and the crust tasted like muah chee or fried 年糕. The redbean had just the right amount of sweetness too. Super nice coming from someone who doesn't have a sweet tooth.

And that marks the end of my Jing Hua Restaurant's food journey. Go for the pan-fried dumplings and red bean paste pancake. The rest, 算了吧. Oh and they charged for tea (I think), peanuts, wet tissues so I think can tell them you don't want? Yup!

Was checking for their contact details and chanced upon the food recommendations on Hungrygowhere. So many up votes for the pan-fried dumplings and..... zero for the xiaolongbao. Maybe they should do something about it? The broth of the dumplings can be used for xiaolongbaos leh, then it would be good liao.
