Review - Taste of Shanghai



Alex Harmon got stuck into some dumplings for her second last review of 2015...


The empire has renovated in World Square, giving shoppers a step up from the usual food court experience. Here you can have a bottle of wine - the T'Gallant Juliet Pinot Grigio ($36/bottle, $7.50/glass) goes down swimmingly - and gorge on dumplings all day and night.



The Xiao Long Bao ($9.80) are the famous soup dumplings – so delicious it’s hard to wait out the impending hot explosion of soup inside.



On the safer side, the Shrimp and Chive Dumplings ($13.80), are festively green and tasty to match - sure to please everyone.



The Deep Fried Chicken Fillet  ($20.80) with chilli and equal measures of salt, pepper and sweetness, is finger-licking good. To balance the defiant flavours you’ll need heapings of fried rice, or simply throw back some jasmine tea.

The Stir Fried Snow Pea Sprout ($16.80) with XO sauce make a nice in-between dish to cleanse the palate.

For dessert we’re shown the Chinese New Year favourite: Sesame Taro Pastry ($7.80) (six halves) served with Sesame Rice Balls in Fermented Rice Soup ($6.80). It might not be for everyone, but it’s definitely a textural experience for the mouth.

For good Chinese comfort food in a buzzing environment, head downtown for a taste of the good stuff.
