Hazelnut Shrimp Roll (榛子虾卷)

Sometimes something on the menu sounds better than it is in reality. I love hazelnuts and I like shrimp. 

This huge fried roll appeared before me at this restaurant near Bugis, Xin Yuan Ji. I don’t think there was anything wrong with the execution, it is just the dish I didn’t love, a paste of shrimp and hazelnuts wrapped in tofu skin and deep-fried. 

Live and learn. 

The bean sprouts were tasty. I think I’ll return for the chicken. Soy sauce, chilies, basil leaves and fried garlic made for a delicious side dish.
