Special Shanghai Tim-Sum @ Margaret Drive

When you make a trip to Margaret Drive, you got to try the Popiah and the Guo Tie.
One colleague ordered some Guo Tie for us, while another ordered 2 popiahs.



Here's the Guo Tie, 8 pieces for $4.
(Think it was 10 pieces for $4 previously)



It's nice and crispy. You should try it too if you are around.




Since I took the photo, here's the popiah. It's from the ground floor. Colleague said that the skin's made by the son upstairs. ;-)

"Colleague said that the skin's made by the son upstairs."

Which begs the question, what does the son DOWNSTAIRS do? Fry the skin? Hehe.

Haha..

It's a two storey building. They sell the popiah at the stall on the ground floor. They make the skin on the floor upstairs.

I could do with some popiah now. crunchy bits, hint of potent garlic, sprouts and the 'bang kwang'.

this was my regular dinner place before the renovation.

I use to makan the chicken rice, guo tie, popiah, single plate chze char stuff with rice at the corner behind char kway teow, claypot rice and that traditional hawker center western food with that serial killer look a like uncle. char kway teow is OK lah, not fantastic but reasonably priced.

LIS,
You sound so happy compared to your impression of the chicken rice stall. LOL


Southernoise,

I'm surprised they sell such popiah in Shanghai eatery? The Guo Tie is almost entirely deep fried...I thought only the bottom of the dumpling is pan-fried most of the times ? ;p

Keropok Man said...

oops, i should make it clearer, the popiah's from another stall :-)

ice said...

Help. I'm craving popiah now...

Tried both the guo tie and popiah as well. Thought the popiah was very fresh and one of the better ones I have tried.

My mum who is a popiah lover simply loves it!

Any idea what is the opening hours of this store? This place seems to be so quiet, not like in the past. I pass by here a couple of times in the morning but there isn't anything tempting for breakfast...
