Food Review: 王师傅 Master Wang The Legendary La Mian Master; Xiao Long Bao & Dimsum Buffet

Hi lovelies,

I dined at 王师傅 The Legendary La Mian Master restaurant recently, a place known for handmade La Mian and Xiao Long Bao, and I had their promotional buffet set which is available till 30 April 2018.

Their buffet set offers unlimited orders of:
1) 4 different flavours of Xiao Long Bao [Traditional, Cheese, Clam, Crab]
2) Shanghai Siew Mai
3) Banana Roll
4) Steam Bun
5) Spring Roll
6) Samosa
7) Seaweed with Enoki Mushroom
8) Bean Paste with Chicken Cubes
9) Spicy Black Fungus
10) Limit to 2 x Kurobuta Xiao Long Bao per pax
11) Free 1 x Lamian with Scallion/ Zhajiang Mian/ Mala Sweet Potato Noodles

At the restaurant, I witnessed the making of Xiao Long Bao and La Mian by 王师傅 Master Wang in person.

Master Wang has superb skills as he demonstrated sectioning the dough with precise weight purely by hand without weighing scale. When he placed the dough onto a weighing scale for us, I was impressed by his skills! Moreover, he could make Xiao Long Bao with only 3 to 4 grams of dough whereas other chefs usually use 5 to 6 grams of dough to wrap the pork filling. 
The thinner the skin, the better the texture!

The Xiao Long Baos perfected made into a nice shape by Master Wang with the pleated, swirled seal at the top of each Xiao Long Bao.

Master Wang also demonstrated the making of 4 different kinds of La Mian available at this restaurant.

For the buffet, we had quite a number of dishes.

We started with the Mala Sweet Potato Noodles.

I had the 小辣 (less hot) version as I am not very good with spicy food. The soup was flavourful and gave the kick without burning my tongue and throat, just right for my preference. The sweet potato noodles were springy with very good texture.

We also had their La Mian with Scallion.

It was really aesthetic when they deliver their La Mian swirled onto the chopsticks!
The La Mian was cooked just nice with the texture springy and delicious taste. I could have more of this La Mian with its perfectly fried scallion but would ask for less of the sauce as it was a little too salty for my liking.

We had their traditional Xiao Long Bao.

While in the mouth, the Xiao Long Bao revealed its refreshing soup and fresh pork filling, a perfect blend of taste which made me reach out for more. Due to its thin skin, the soup within cooled down quite fast, so I could put the whole Xiao Long Bao into my mouth without scalding my tongue. This made the whole experience of consuming Xiao Long Bao more enjoyable and satisfying!

This Kurobuta Xiao Long Bao was the most delicious and unique in taste!

The soup was fully filled within the Xiao Long bao and this Kurobuta Xiao Long Bao had a delicious truffle oil taste even though we were told that they did not put any truffle oil into their pork filling.
This Xiao Long Bao is definitely recommended and must try at their restaurant!

For this buffet, there were Cheese Xiao Long Bao, Clam Xiao Long Bao and Crab Xiao Long Bao available.

Next, we had their Shanghai Siew Mai which tasted like Lo Mai Gai (steamed glutinous rice with chicken) but with the xiao long bao skin.

Their Banana roll was deliciously addictive to me, a sweet tooth lover. The thin crispy skin filled with roasted banana and red bean paste. I like this dish very much!

Another not to miss at the buffet was this plain steam bun. The texture was soft and fluffy, and it felt like cloud melting in the mouth.

Bean paste chicken cubes was tender with a good blend of bean paste taste but the meat was a little too soft for my preference, and I am not a fan of chicken skin, so I would like this dish more if it was without the chicken skin.

Their spicy black fungus was good with its mild spiciness that stimulates the appetite, a good appetizer dish. 

I would say this buffet is worth going for it you love eating loads of fresh Xiao Long Baos!
