Pan-fried pork buns
Unfortunately the buns were oily from the inside out. The casings were incredibly thick and doughy, whilst the pork fillings were small and lost within the thickness of the dough.
Xiao Long BaoWe usually love the XLB here, however unfortunately this time they were served cold. Perhaps we’ll have to come back another time.
Bento with fried chicken drumsticks, egg, choi and rice with minced porkThe egg in the bento was quite rubbery and overcooked, however we did enjoy the fried drumsticks with sweet and sour dipping sauce – the chicken was crunchy, with a cripsy, tasty outer casing. While some of the dishes here appear to be a hit and miss affair, we’d happily return to Food Republik for their XLBs and fried chicken – yum.
