Malan Gourmet

Had a simple family dinner at malan gourmet at esplanade mall. we were looking for chinese food at esplanade and humble abode seems out of our budget, the one other choice we had was this. so there was no choice even though there was only 1 table of customers at around 7:30pm whereas thai express right beside was almost full house
Xiao long bao (shanghia soup dumpling), the soup in the dumpling wasn't really tasty, i wasn't impressed by it.
Seafood claypot with beancurd, this one is quite salty, but when taken with plain rice, it taste quite well. beancurd is soft and nice.
Xo fried rice, i felt that the rice was too soggy, i prefer fried rice where the rice is dryer.
Braised soft tofu, which is not soft at all, it taste like the tau kwa you get at normal kuey chap stalls
Mango prawn fritters, the mango seems a little too cooked cos it was slimy, prawn was so small i had to dig for it.
