I honestly did not make a link to the Castle Hill Branch until I stepped foot inside. I was wondering why the interior and the menu looks so familiar. It’s funny because I’ve been walking past this place a few times and always noticed dumplings + long queue.
Luckily I booked before a queue formed quite quickly after 6pm. And as soon as we sat down, we immediately ticked off dumplings because that is the main reason why we came here.
We also ordered something new which is pictured below – the prawns with vermicelli.
Actually, I’ll have to admit that I had this dish at another Chinese restaurant last weekend and it was the first time I had vermicelli cooked like this that is not with crabs! I love these noodles but they were seriously oily when we got to the bottom of the bowl.
I like how the prawns were already peeled for us, saves me from getting my fingers dirty haha.
The Xiao Long Baos are always a crowd pleaser and its best to always have it piping hot! Leave it by itself for a while will not taste as nice 😦
But, I was a tad disappointed with the wontons because the dumpling skins were a bit too thick for my liking. And the chilli wasn’t chilli enough. Castle Hill was better lol.
