My family and I have been to Richmond many times, but always went to the same places, so we wanted to try something new. We landed on this spot, and I'm quite happy with the choice! This place makes pretty authentic versions of Shanghai and Jiangsu dishes for a really good price. We were actually quite lucky to get a table, as almost all of the tables were reserved that evening for large families coming out for a Sunday dinner. We ordered a lot for this meal, but most of them were small dishes. For cold dishes, we got smoked fish, jelly pork, and drunken chicken. We also got shengjian bao and xiaolong bao as they were popular here. For the main dishes, we got the classic lion's head and something called huotui jin bai, which was cabbage in a white sauce with some ham. Okay, I can acknowledge that a lot of these dishes don't sound... particularly appetizing. But don't stop reading, please! All of these dishes have something good about them, I swear. Let's start with the shengjian bao. The shengjian bao was a very solid bun. It was fresh off the pans and way too hot to eat at first, so hooray for fresh buns! The outside was extremely crispy, and the inside of the bun was nice and soft. The meat filling was pretty standard, good but nothing to write home about. It was EXTREMELY juicy, with it pouring out once you take a bite. For those who aren't familiar with this bao: LET IT COOL! You'll scorch your mouth if you don't! Don't let a hot bun ruin your day :( Have you been to Din Tai Fung? So you must've had their xiaolong bao, then! Yeaaa don't expect that here. This XLB is REALLY good, but it is in no way shape or form the XLB you would normally expect. Shanghainese XLBs are normally very delicate and small, with a very thin wrapper. This is not that kind of XLB. What you get, instead, is a thicker wrapper, almost like an actual dumpling, a larger sized bao, and a much fattier and heavier meat filling and soup. And that almost sounds like the opposite of a conventional XLB. But here's the thing. It works. Yes, it may be a bit off-putting at first, but the meatiness of the filling and the fattiness of the soup works so well with the vinegar dipping sauce. Please, give this version of XLB a try, it'll definitely open your eyes to how diverse Chinese food can be, even down to regional differences of the same dish! The cold dishes were all good. My favorite was the smoked fish. The smokiness of the fish mixed very well with the sweet sauce, and was quite balanced. There weren't that many bones in addition, so nice plus! The jelly pork took a bit of time for me to warm up to. At first, I thought, "This is just spam.", but eventually I started to get the appeal! The drunken chicken wasn't my thing, though. The wine taste was way too strong. On the contrary, though, my dad loved the chicken! Moving on, the lion's head. Oh, don't worry! It's not actually lion's head! It's a meatball. Erm, I mean, three FAT meatballs. They give a lot for this dish. The meatball isn't made of super finely minced meat, it's more chunky than a traditional meatball, and also has some vegetables in it. But does it really hit the spot! It soaks up the incredibly savory sauce like a sponge, and is just Chinese comfort food to the max. My parents loved this dish, and said that it was incredibly authentic to how it's normally made in China, so a big kudos for that! The cabbage was, surprisingly, really delicious! It was just a head of napa cabbage in a sauce, but it really worked. It was almost like a soup, with the broth being the weird, goopy translucent sauce. But I'll have to admit, I would order it again! It's really hard to describe the flavor, but it's just good please get it! This meal was only $65 once converted to USD, which is a ridiculously low price for the amount we got. While I do want to try other restaurants in Richmond, I wholeheartedly recommend checking this place out if you haven't!
tasty options. will come again
Nice lunch there. Too big plate for Asian people. Good taste especially sweet and sour fish.
