Tian Jin Fong Kee 天津冯记
Went to People’s Park to help my Dad pay for his China tour trip and came across this shop. He said that this shop has over 20 over years of history and that it’s dumplings (锅贴) are very good.
So we sat down and ordered a small serving, $6. They have an air-conditioned area, and they also have a stall in the market hawker beside it.
We waited for about 10 minutes. While waiting, we were guessing how many dumplings would there be for $6. It was a surprising 10 when it was served to us.
The dumplings were not those that I expected – crispy bottom and soft at the top. This seemed more like it was steamed, then deep-fried whole. The vinegar was average, and their ginger did not look or taste fresh. There wasn’t much ginger taste too. However, the fillings were moist and juicy, and the minced pork were not fatty.
A pity that there was only a single type of filling for the dumplings – chives and minced pork. There was also limited Tian Jin cuisine. The majority of their food in their full menu are already very localised. Otherwise, it would feel more authentic to be eating real Tian Jin cuisines. I would fail their dumplings.
Prices exclude 7% GST. No service charge.
