Suzhou Dimsum: One of Binondo's BEST Kept Secrets

It's been years since my family has discovered Suzhou, I wonder why I've never properly blogged about it. I had my first real/acceptable/authentic xiao long bao there. I loved it so much, my uncle and I would order a lot of them for lunch. A lot= we wouldn't eat anything else. I find it fantastic that they've opened shop in Greenhills which makes it far more convenient for yours truly!

Specialty Xiao Long Bao- P100 for 4 pieces.
Trust me, 4 are not enough.
Perfect and intricately crafted.
There's a relatively thick wrapper that envelopes the soupy meaty morsel inside. It's tasty and absolutely lovely. More often than not, I wouldn't touch a xiao long bao when I've seen the wrapper broken that's cause all the lovely juice would've dripped out. Now that's a shame.

Shredded Tokwa with Pork- P180
We also had tokwa. It was mildly spicy and there were a ton of bell peppers. It's not particularly notable though.

Eggplant with Mince Pork- P150
I love eggplant. I really do. It's so fleshy and yummy. So we had the typical chinese style eggplant with a few morsels of mince pork and chili. It's perfect with rice, all the oozy sauce too.

Pancakes with Spring Onion- P90
Stir-fried Beef Noodle- P150
Now, the other two MUSTS aside from the xiao long bao- the stir fry beef noodle and scallion pancakes. The noodles have a mild curry sort of satay flavor. It's really simple and done to perfection. The bits of egg with the curry- satay thing are insanely good. Then, who can forget the scallion pancakes? They're relatively thin, but they've got a spectacular crunch to them. But, they're also, in a way, chewy. Really delightful.
