Conveniently located inside Aberdeen Centre, I've been coming to Northern Delicacy over the years. Although I'm not a frequent customer, I find their ambience to be quite pleasant, their price reasonable, and their dishes to be on the plus side. Most oftentimes, I would come here for a quick lunch as they offer a variety of popular Shanghainese dishes such as buns, dumplings, noodles, and other small plates which are easy for sharing.
Handmade noodles in minced pork bean paste ($6.25) was quite the filler. The bean paste sauce was quite flavourful and the noodles had the right chewing consistency; soft, but not soggy--perfect for slurping. The dish may get mundane after a few bites, but once you add the trustee XO sauce, all is well again.

To finish off our carbs-filled lunch, arrived a plate of steamed pork and chive bun ($4.95). I wish there was more filling and less dough, but they were once again extra delicious with a little bit of XO sauce.
