The combi pork/seafood were nothing quite out of the ordinary. The vegetable dumplings and steamed spinach were very fresh and steamed just right. The drunken chicken was also quite good.
The special steamed pork dumplings were indeed special - Nice and juicy. The size was just perfect for eating in a single bite. The skin was practically translucent but thick enough to stay intact when picked up with chopsticks. The soup in the dumpling was also just right -- pure and unadulerated.
However, the winner for the night in a unanimous decision (including Andre) was the porkchop. I regret now that I didn't get the exact name. It was tender (suprising for porkchop) and bursting with flavor. Andre, who usually eats like a bird, demanded that his bowl be refilled 3 times. It would have been perfect with rice.
Our total bill, with drinks, came to around RMB284. A bit on the high side for a dumpling restaurant... but IMHO, well worth it. We left the restaurant well satiated.
