Whatโ€™s so good ๐Ÿ˜Š?

Had known this stall since it was at Tiong Bahru market for more than 3 decades ago ... had since moved and settled down here @ Alexandra Village Food Centre for the longest time thereafter ... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

This stall owner - 2 brothers had been together since the longest time too ! producing hundred of thousands of Shui Jing Pau (Crystal bun) ever since it started ... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

From the special flour mixed, dough created, flatten, rolled over and formed and cut in circle โญ•๏ธ patterns and removed. Then the fillings made from Turnips & strips of mushrooms w/ shrimps added salt to fried to taste ; yam ๐Ÿ  paste sweeten & red bean paste sweeten. Thankfully ๐Ÿ˜… not too sweet ... managed to capture a helper in action sequentially and seeing is believing ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ โญ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘

I had patiently waited for the Yam paste and red bean to be ready before I made the purchased. So, managed to get a set of their best selling Shui Jing Pau ever in Singapore ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ. (I have not seen any competitor to the stall after so many years ...)

Itโ€™s hand ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿคš crafted individually (like a dumpling ๐ŸฅŸ and clip at the side to close, then bring to steam wok to cook and best of all, after cooked ... it changes to become translucent... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

I liked all 3 flavours as itโ€™s uniqueness stands out individually ... ๐Ÿคฉ

1. Turnips ($0.90) - crunchy with mushroom ๐Ÿ„ strips and fried with small shrimps and added salt to taste. (Also known as Salty type)

2. Yam ๐Ÿ  paste ($1.00) - sweeten and great smooth texture. (Also known as sweet but whiter in colour)

3. Red Bean paste ($1.00) - sweeten and smooth and can literally see through as it turn to become black colour (also known as Sweet)

With the Turnip Shui Jing Pau, Itโ€™s great to pair it with their homemade sambal chillies ๐ŸŒถ (he shall scoop for U), shall give U that extra oomph and kick ๐Ÿฆต. One is never enough !

To me, indeed it has seen itโ€™s fair share of price inflation and the Shui Jing Pau becoming an Old School/ tradition through age ... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Limited stock available daily, whilst stock last ... usually Q, come @ 11:00am best time ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

Itโ€™s Shui Jing Pau ... Yummily ๐Ÿ˜‹ Great ๐Ÿ‘!
