Shou La Shou (Hand In Hand) Beijing Restaurant

Shou La Shou is a little eatery inside the foodcourt on the 2nd level of Jurong Point 2. The Jurong Point of today is a far cry of when it first opened it's doors in 1995. Incidentally, the day it opened is the 5th of December 1995!! That's exactly 15 years ago today! The mall went through 2 major revamps, or rather, extensions, to expand to cater to the popular mall's traffic flow. It is the biggest suburban shopping mall in Singapore. Now if only they had a Daiso here.

Anyway, Shou La Shou....

Marinated Seaweed dish. Tasty, but not terribly mind-blowing.

Xiao Long Bao. Yummy. Nothing broke, soup intact. Worth it here.

Deep Fried Scallion Pancake. A tad chewy, which is not necessarily a bad thing. A tad oily, which I suppose can't be helped, seeing as how it IS deep fried.

Deep fried eggplant with pork floss. Ok, this is the bomb. The texture of the eggplant, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. I don't normally like to rave about deep fried food, but I am very partial to eggplant, so..... I think it has something to do with the batter, but I don't know what.

Pan fried pork buns. These fellas were so-so. Nothing to rave about, but not horribly bad. Edible... Not terribly tasty, but it fills you up. The crispy bits on the bottoms of the bun are the best thing about this dish.

Our meal costed us $30+ (can't remember the exact amount), wich included 2 large bottles of Tsing Dao beer. There is another branch in Jalan Besar as well.

One thing I have to say though. It was dinner time & all, but the wait staff kept bringing items we did not order to our table. Like... Hello, there ARE table numbers on the order chit, right?
