Xiao Long Bao (15pcs)
Xiao Long Bao is famous for its delicate skin and scrumptious soupy filling and is one of the finest Chinese dishes. It literally means “small basket buns”, is a type of steamed bun originating from Jiangsu province, China. Known as soup dumplings in English, they are a hybrid of Baozi and Jiaozi: having the shape of Baozi but using non-leavened wrappers like Jiaozi. Enjoy Chinese comfort food guilt-free with our premium and authentic Chinese Dim Sum Menu for only P25.00 per piece. Must-try!
How to Cook Xiao Long Bao
Steam for only 8 to 10 minutes. No special technique required. Prepare your steamer basket properly to avoid sticking, otherwise the wrapper can be easily torn and you’ll end up with a broken, “soupless” Xiao Long Bao.
What's good with our Xiao Long Bao is the wrapper is not easily broken. Just to be sure brush a thin layer of oil on the steamer basket if you are using a metal steamer.
How to Eat Xiao Long Bao Neatly
For the best taste and texture, take the steamer basket to the table without delay (no need to transfer the dumplings to a plate).
Hold the top part of the dumpling with a pair of chopsticks. Pick up then place onto a soup spoon or a small saucer. Poke a small hole with the chopsticks to let the soup flow out. Slurp up! You may directly bite a small hole and suck out the soup but be careful not to burn your tongue!
For ginger sauce all you need are julienned fresh ginger and black vinegar. But you can use red vinegar or rice vinegar instead. If you like soy sauce, you can add this for some extra salty flavor.
You may also use other condiments, do try our Pure Chili Sauce or Chili Garlic Sauce — both work well on their own.
How to Store and Freeze Xiao Long Bao
