Actually I’ve been to this place very long ago since my JC classmate’s dad owns the eatery~ haha. So my classmate is the “Young Master” dere wor~ hee…
Having moved into Duxton, now its within walking distance to the eatery which is located at Neil Road.
I like the Pan-fried dumpling there, as it is fried to slightly brownish and very crispy. I like to eat it with the chilli, which was meant more for the minced-pork noodles (I think).
Minced-pork noodles is nice too. I’ve tried similar noodles at other chinese restaurants but I liked the sauce of this simple dish. As you can see it only has noodles, minced-pork and thinly slicked cucumber.
We ordered the Xiao Long Bao as well, but personally I felt that the skin is slightly too mushy for my taste.
Highly recommended dish is the dessert – Red Bean Paste Pancake. Though I didn’t order this time, I’m sure it still tasted crispy and nice as before.
Its easy to locate the shop cos you’ll see a crowd of people outside the row of shophouses along Neil Road. Due to limited shop space, I think reservation is not accepted as they only seat guests when ALL guests arrived. Believe me as I witnessed how the boss stopped a group of 4 from entering when they claimed that 1 person is parking the car…

Qun Zhong Eating House is closed.
[Updates on 2nd Dec 2011]
Passed by in car today, saw that there’s some interior renovation work going on at the unit where Qun Zhong Eating House was. The signboard of Qun Zhong is still hung up there. Hope it’ll re-open soon.

Walked by today, saw that the shop area has expanded to the unit next door. Seems like there’ll be a larger floor space for the shop when they reopen. They should be reopening quite soon.

Can confirm that they are finally re-opened for business! Business hours in pix below. And I also tried the Red Bean Paste Pancake but it wasn’t as crispy as what I remembered it to be. Shop space expanded so it is slightly more spacious but queue is still unavoidable.

Visited the Bugis Village outlet. I like the bright and neat environment, more spacious and comfortable than the Neil road one.

Was at Palais Renaissance to eat at Sushi Kuu when I saw the signage for Jing Hua Xiao Chi in the mall! What a surprise. They’ve opened a 3rd outlet in the “atas” mall.
