If you ask what’s my favourite food in Shanghai… hmmm I have to say I love pan fried dumplings (生煎/ Sheng Jian) the best. Actually in Australia, whatever ‘Shanghai dumpings’ I had, none of them were even close to authentic. Keep reading and see if you are also eating fake Shanghai dumplings~~😘
- 1 serve: 4 dumplings
- Price: 7 RMB (around 1.5 AUD)
Notice that the dumplings in Shanghai are fried up side down.🖖 This is to avoid the juice inside to come out. All the dumplings in Australia were fried at the wrong side.
Also we eat dumplings with vinegar, and ONLY with vinegar. In Australia they give soy source in the restaurant. How can you eat dumplings with soy source!😵
My video on how the dumplings were made and ordered in Shanghai. Have a look! Video length: 1:19s.
The other thing is that, dumplings are not fried buns. The wrap are supposed to be very thin, and the fried side should be crispy.❤️ That’s actually the best part of the food~
