SHI LIN

 After visiting grandma at St Lukes, 
 we decided to have dinner at Shi Lin restaurant which was just nearby.
I love how bright and classy the place looks
An open kitchen is always nice.
The sound, the smell, and the sight of cooking can really help you work up an appetite.

Xiao long bao was good.
The wrapper wasn't too thick, firmness was perfect.
Once you bite through the thin, smooth dumpling wrapper, you'll discover a shock of hot, rich, broth bathing the savory pork filling.

We ordered Shredded Pork Fried Rice & Shrimp with egg fried rice.
The shredded pork fried rice was the highlight of our meal. It really stood out!

Salt and Pepper Chicken

Salt and Pepper squid was tasty, very crunchy and not oily

Pork buns
It was like Xiao long bao! it also had soup inside but this time it was inside the meat.
flavorful as well.

Spicy Spare ribs

The Salt and Pepper chicken & the Spicy Spare Ribs tasted the same.. it was just a pork or a chicken version of the other.. it was okay, nothing to rave about.

I'll probably rate the taste of the food here 3/5 and ambiance 4/5
Maybe I'll give it another try..
I might go back for their fried rice & xiao long bao...
