Woke up early morning with the aim of having a hearty breakfast… Alrightey, hop on the train, to Dongmen MRT Station, and look out for Kao-Chi, a famous Taiwanese local foodie place, known for its delicious xiao long paos!
Being the gluttoney I am, charsiew paos would not escape my sight! Alright, maybe just this time, I will have them “sou” instead. (Influenced by seeing this plate on almost every patron’s table).
Oh….my….gosh. Fluff beyond words. Flake beyond words. Aromatic porky char siew beyond words. Do not be fooled by its petite size. It was quite rich, and having two pieces of it…I begun to worry if I could stomach in another 12 XLPs.
Boo-yah! Of course I can! Each XLP folded and steamed to perfection. One of the best XLPs I had tried in the longest time. The broth was so flavourful, and pretty generously sized tender pork meat too. The skin wasn’t too thick or hard, but just enough to give a kick to the munching and holding in those deliciousness without bursting.
Master shi fus in the kitchen working their magic of making patrons lips’ smile wide open. I wonder how long and how many paos these shi fus had to make to master the perfect skill of making the paos.
Total damage was nearly RM 60 over. Ouches! But, it’s good quality compensated for it.
Worth a visit, for Taiwan travellors! But to fully enjoy the meal, a crowd of 3-4 would be ideal!
