I quite often go to Esquire Kitchen, either in 1-Utama or in Mid Valley to grab a Soya Bean and some Fried Sauce Noodles, yummy!
The Wor Tip or Fried Dumplings are pretty good too.
But I always go for the sauce noodles.
I did hear someone say they had siu loong pau, so I had to check it out, seen as though I’m on a quest for the best siu loong pau in KL!
Dragon-I failed pretty miserably.
Anyway if you have anything at Esquire, it must be the sauce noodles!
The vege are pretty good at esquire too like this fried aubergine with garlic and spring onions.
The Wor Tip or fried dumplings, something like Japanese Gyoza.
These are also definately worth having.
The other noodles are good too like this one..
The mighty siao loong pau! Or…did I order Siu Mai?!
Yes pathetic right? No soup inside either.
Yes indeed, original fakeplan siao loong pau, where’s the soup!
Bad bad bad siao loong pau, shame as I like Esquire Kitchen generally it’s so less pretentious than places like Dragon-I.
The customary empty plates.
Yah my pics are lousy I know.
I like Esquire kitchen, especially their super fast and efficient service and delivery of food, plus the reasonable price.
But I definately WONT be eating their siao loong pau again.
Next to try…Crystal Jade at Lot 10, Chef whatever in SS2 and Shanghai 10 in Bangsar.
citidel hotel (or is it cititel?) at mid valley have a restaurant which serve siu loong pau which is pretty good. don’t quote me on this tho…. as this was 4 years ago when i went…
…actually… it may have been just a couple of years ago….
yah….the standard dropped a lot compared to years back. well, may be not in 1-utama?
hmmm.. Shanghai 10, is this the same place that just opened in 3rd flr, Sg Wang?? If yes, definitely bad….. can’t even get their egg custard done right! No taste of egg at all, how the hell can you screw up something so simple?!!
go Grandma’s place at Uptown and try their huge ass ‘premium’ siu loong pau.
The give you a straw to drink teh soup
SEA Park mixed rice is only RM5. You get sweet & sour pork, clams, veges, the lot.
Shanghai 10 is so so only.
Crystal Jade is pretty good, especially the “hot & spicy la mien”, the portion is big and enough for 2 person. Limited smoking area though.
You can find some nice Siu Loong Pau in Ye Ching @ Heritage Row. Very nice one! They give you a tiny straw for soup.
I hate esquire. They were really good until now.
I apparently know the owners son, he’ll be taking over the restaurant pretty soon. Dont u think there should be some improvements!
But their siu loong pau is quite good. Was then.. i dont know about now..
Yo tiger … you back in malaysia? or still stuck in the dessert reminiscing wonderful malaysian porky food ????
cititel is dragon-i also ler… i heard drop standard.
but i really loved those siu long baos in crystal jade lot 10. remember to order the deep fried pork ribs!!!
what bad photographer!
that’s not siau long bau la duh
Shanghai restaurant in JW Marriot offers the best siu loong paos. Your tongue will get burnt by the soup in it. Also, you can try their Tea Duck; crispy skin and juicy meat, yumz~
wtf thats siu mai!
best siu loong pau in KL – Shang at JW Marriot
2nd best siu loong pau – Crystal Jade at Lot 10
dragon-i is ok. dont even think bother with bangsar shanghai 10’s siu loong pau… -___- actually dont bother with shanghai 10’s anything.
How much is it ? Can you tell me in more detailed ?
Crystal Jade at Lot 10 has pretty good siu loong pau. There are a couple of places around Jalan Imbi that has decent siu loong pau’s too but I forgot their names lol 😛
Best siu loong pau is at the source…Hong Kong!
Suggest you try siu loong pau with hairy crab roe (seasonal…right about now) which is the ultimate version of this dish.
Recommended places in HK: SuperStar restaurant chain, Victoria City or Lei Garden.
Crystal Jade so-so lar
try gandma’s place at uptown, I wrote about it before. Huge ass siu long pao, comes with a straw!
Crystal Jade has one of the best (the best so far for me) siu loong pau. It’s definitely one of the dishes i order when I’m thr.
I totally agree when you say their siu long pau look more like siu mai. I have been to many EK ard Klang Valley to try their siu long pau…and NONE of them are the legendary siu long pau. The best siu long pau (affordable restaurant) I had is at Teng Fong Tai restaurant.
