Suhang Restaurant

Our family was looking for a place to eat Xiao Long Bao after discovering the new place on Richards Street downtown Shanghai Xiao Long Bao didn't open on Sundays. Then we didn't make a reservation at our second choice Top Shanghai Cuisine Restaurant so was turned away. Suhang Restaurant was near by and my mom has been there before and it was pretty good so we ended up there. It's tucked away in a small strip mall on Ackroyd Road right across from the bigger strip mall Top Shanghai Cuisine is in.

Crispy Rice with Mixed Meat $15.80
The table beside us had ordered this so I wanted to give it a try as well. You are suppose to pour the soupy stuff over the crispy rice but my sister resisted this. So we just poured it into our own bowls. I really liked it; something about the crispiness of the rice in soup appeals to me but soup was just a tad salty.

Pickled Vegetables with Tripe & Soy Beans $15.80
I don't know about this translation. It's a vegetarian dish. The "tripe" is the beancurd. My mom says the beancurd is suppose to represent the tripe. lol This was an ok dish.

Steamed Soup Bun with Pork Filling (Xiao Long Bao) $5.50
Mmm! Yay! The Xiao Long Baos! Delicious pork and soupiness wrapped inside a thin dough skin. It's an art just to eat it. Mmmm. So good.

Szechuan Style Smoked Duck (half) $16.95
The duck was very good! It wasn't salty and had nice flavour to it. My mom was singing praises about this and was telling me to make sure write that in my blog. Hahaha.

Pan-Fried Pork Soft Buns $6.50
I thought we should have ordered something else other than these buns. They taste good but they are basically the same as the Xiao Long Bao but in bun form. The filling tastes the same and they also have the soupiness that Xiao Long Bao has!

Our dinner ended with complimentary dessert. I loved it. It's coconut jelly!

Overall, our dinner was good. I liked everything we ordered and wouldn't mind coming back again to try some different stuff. Our Xiao Long Bao craving as been successfully satisfied.
