Flourful Delight 知味面点 – Stellar Xiao Long Bao & Noodles at Golden Mile Food Center
Xiao Long Bao and Zha Jiang Mian. Name a better duo. I’ll wait. These two dishes are among the most loved dishes of Chinese cuisine, and are must-orders for me whenever I go to restaurants such as Crystal Jade or Din Tai Fung. Imagine my joy when I found Flourful Delight in Golden Mile Food Center selling Xiao Long Bao and noodles that can give these established restaurants a run for their money!
The first thing I noticed when I approached Flourful Delight 知味面点 is their workbench, which is covered in flour and balls of dough. I immediately realised that the father-and-son duo who runs Flourful Delight make their dumpling skin by hand. If that isn’t a sign of quality, I don’t know what is!
Upon ordering my Xiao Long Bao ($5.50 for 6 pieces), I was told to wait for about 10 minutes to let the dumplings steam. Once they were ready, make sure to let them cool slightly, or the hot soup contained within may burn your tongue. I speak from experience, because that’s exactly what happened to me when I took a bite of these dumplings. What can I say, they looked so good that I got impatient!
Subpar Xiao Long Baos often have a thick, chewy skin, which makes it hard to get to the delicious broth within. What makes Flourful Delight’s Xiao Long Bao stand out is how delicately thin the dumpling skin is, while still being strong enough to remain intact when you pick them up with your chopsticks. Pair these dumplings with some vinegar and ginger slices to cut through the richness of the pork broth!
Flourful delight also offers a wide range of delicious noodle dishes. I ordered two classics, Zha Jiang Mian ($4.50) and Dan Dan Mian ($4). The Zha Jiang Mian consists of minced meat and a fermented soybean sauce, while Dan Dan Mian features a peanut sauce with chilli oil and vinegar.
What impressed me the most was the quality of the noodles, which were springy and chewy. With the relatively simple sauces, the quality and doneness of the noodles can be noticed immediately. The noodles here were perfectly cooked!
While simple, these noodle dishes were quite substantial, filling me up rather quickly. Because of this, I preferred the Dan Dan Mian, which had a dash of vinegar to cut through the dish and make it more appetising.
I am sure that it is only a matter of time before this relatively new hawker stall, with its high-quality dishes, attracts a loyal fanbase. I, for one, am now a fan, and I will definitely be back for more!
