小笼饱 RM9

It's juicy and yummy. There's soup within.

"小笼饱 or commonly known as Soup Dumpling is one of the finest Chinese delicacy. The exact origins of 小笼饱 is unknown, but they first appeared in northwest of Shanghai, at least 100 years ago. This ubiquitous little bundle of joy is indigenous to almost every culture.

As you carefully pick one up with your chopsticks, you could literally see the weight of the soup stretching the translucent skin down. The best 小笼饱 has skin so thin yet it has enough elasticity to hold the delicate balance of dough, soup and meat in it."

Dhoby Ghaut Koay Teow Soup

Venue: Dhoby Ghaut... somewhere within the row shops that is situated in between Jalan Gopeng and Jalan Air Hitam.. but the cafe is facing Jalan Air Hitam..
Here's the location.

This is the cafe. It is named Say Por Kiew Cafe 洗布桥饮食中心 because the Bridge 洗布桥 (literally means "Bridge of cloth washing") is somewhere around there. There are still people washing white cloth by the river underneath the bridge nowadays.

The cafe is directly opposite to this furniture shop.

This is the stall.

Dry Duck Meat Koay Teow 粿條干
The dry one didn't have wine fragrant. Perhaps it will be added on request.
