Lilong (Taste of Shanghai), Hurstville Westfields, Sydney South

On top of Westfields Hurstville, with new places like Burger Co. by Kingston  and now also an offshoot of the popular Shanghainese chain of restaurants - Lilong.

From what I recall, the menu is very much similar to the other Taste of Shanghais. The setting is more relaxed with some indoor and some outdoor seating but it is all undercover. It was also reasonably busy on a Saturday night, so best to avoid peak times or book early if you have a big group.

Xiao Long Bao - $10.80 - The must order for any Taste of Shanghai meal for me is the dumplings. Here the skin is thin allowing the juices to easily flow out - unfortunately as you can see in the photo, it meant one of the dumplings had burst and already released its lovely juices :(

Pan fried pork bun - $10.80 - Another crowd pleaser here. Crispy based buns with the same pork mince filling as the dumplings but in a bun version.

Spicy Dan Dan noodles - $11.80 - The last dish we ordered was something a bit different. Spicy mince pork and preserved vegetables as well as fresh choy sum vegies in a pork based broth with thick rice noodles. We literally ate and drank everything in this bowl. Nuff said.
