New Shanghai, Ashfield

With only a 20 minute lunch sojourn in Ashfield, C and I knew we had to go to New Shanghai for dumplings. As always, the pan fried pork buns and dumplings were doughy, yeasty, juicy, soupy, salty and fatty, all the things I crave from a Shanghainese dumpling. We always ask for La Jiao Jiang (Fermented Chili Sauce) because it makes the perfect pre-vinegar dip for the dumplings.. Although today for the first time when we went to eat them they were a bit cold. We sent them back, to our suprise instead of sending new ones they just bunged them back on the hot plate to reheat, so they were a little dry. Don't worry New Shanghai, I still love you even though you are such a tight ass! The noodles were delicious, slippery and very chewy. The pan-fried pork buns are not photographed, because in my excitement we scoffed the lot before I had a chance. Snap.
