Nice Green Bo - still don't get it

Lau | Jun 24, 2008 11:49 AM

So my gf wanted xiao lon bao last weekend, so we decided to re-try Nice Geen Bo and well I still don't get it, was not impressed at all (again).

Here's what we got:
- cong you bing (scallion pancake) - this was the best thing, a bit thick, but reasonably airy and light, probably the only thing i thought was good
- yu xiang qie zi (eggplant in spicy garlic sauce) - someone told me this was good, so i tried it. It's ok, its not spicy really, the sauce tasted ok, but was a bit on the gloppy side. Purple eggplant itself was fine.
- cripsy eel (don't know what its called in chinese) - the eel themselves were very thin and crispy and they could've been very tasty, the sauce was a sticky sweet sauce that was way too sweet, it was like candy sweet
- xie fen xiao lon bao (crab soup dumplings) - not impressed. skins were sort of soggy, filling was fine, but nothing special. Just generally not impressed.

I'm going to try it one last time b/c Hling said they have a decent peking duck, but after that if thats not good I'm done with this place.
