We stumbled across this Taiwanese venue when looking for somewhere to eat on a Friday after work. Most venues were not quite open yet, but My House was already buzzing with plenty of reserved tables. It stands on Oxford Street on the site where Low Key Chow House used to be. The lovely gentleman in charge of front of house found us a table and explained the dumpling serving sizes and the technology to order them. They give you a tablet device to peruse the menu and order which is fun and a good way to make sure that you get the order right.
The range of dumplings is extensive, and you can choose from various fillings. We chose the famous xiao long bao – juicy pork soup dumplings and were advised to dip them in the vinegar sauce that is provided on the table. They tasted amazing and we were helpfully given a spoon to help with eating them.
We also chose spicy kimchi and beef boiled dumplings. Again delicious.
We chose a few non-dumpling dishes – a fried kueh teow with chicken, very authentic with the lovely smoky wok flavour running through it.
Then some spring rolls with crab and prawn, which were served with a sweet chilli sauce – very moreish.
We left feeling very satisfied and as we paid the man gestured towards the owner who was busy hand making all of the dumplings. The dumplings may not be as perfectly uniform as the restaurants where they buy them in (probably frozen), but they are certainly very tasty and you can tell the difference in the freshness. This restaurant is well worth a visit for the tastiest dumplings in town and the friendliest service.
