Suzhou Chinese Cuisine: Go for the Xiao Long Bao!

For this Weekend Adventure, the explorers traveled to BGC to try the food at Suzhou Eastern Chinese Cuisine.

Suzhou is located on the second floor of the Crossroads building which is just a few meters away from Mercato Centrale. There were a lot of people around when we went there. :) We used Uber to get to the place since it's more efficient.

When we got there, we took several pictures outside first. :)

Thanks to +Deal Grocer, we got to eat there at a discount.

Once inside, since we made a reservation, we got to sit in a booth which is like a VIP section. It has red curtains to partition each booth from the other, and you sit on a red sofa. Reminds me of Petshop of Horrors somehow. :) And you can close the curtains if you want more privacy. But we didn't do that of course, what for? The design of the place is pretty cool :D

We ordered a few things from their menu:

House Tea

Sour and Spicy Soup P180

Special Xiao Long Bao P125

Sweet and Sour Pork P275

Pork and Vegetables Fried Rice P180, Good for 3

Everything we ordered, except the chicken which was somehow forgotten after we tasted the xiao long bao. bwahaha
They gave us hot house tea while we waited for the food to be cooked. But the wait wasn't too long, In just 10 minutes we got our soup, then a few minutes later the rice, sweet and sour pork, and the xiao long bao. The last thing to arrive was the fried chicken.

The servers were very attentive and you don't have to wave around aimlessly for several minutes just for one of them to notice you, which is great.

The best parts of the meal were the Xiao Long Bao and the Spicy Fried Chicken. The xiao long bao was big and juicy. The sauce really brings out the flavor too. And the chicken? Oh boy, the chicken was fried with a ton of garlic and red hot chilli peppers and it came out absolutely delish! The servings are more than enough for all three of us. Take note that my brother has the appetite of two people and we still had some leftovers for takeout. :)

Delicious food: Awesome Xiao Long Bao
Big Servings
Attentive Staff
Quick Service
Good Location, near Mercato and High Street

Not all of the food is good: Sour and Spicy Soup was awful

Overall: Great
The price is fairly affordable and the food is delicious. Worth a try!
