xiao long bao
If you’re a fan of cute foods in Sydney or Melbourne, Australia, then you are in luck as Din Tai Fung Australia is offering a giant colorful rainbow Xiao Long Bao (XLB) dumpling.
The Giant Rainbow Dumpling was first announced late last month as a limited edition menu item, according to its initial announcement on Instagram. It is apparently seven times larger than the regular XLB and comes in an assortment of colors.
The Giant Dumpling Lamp looks very similar to the Little B but is much bigger and it comes with a few extra features.
Xiao long bao — or soup dumplings — are filled with delicious broth, tender meat and love, but eating one can be difficult if you have never had the pleasure of tasting one before.
You have to be careful or you will end up with scalding hot soup on your tongue or on your clothes.
Xiao long bao, also known as XLB or soup dumplings, typically holds soup and meat wrapped in white dough, but a restaurant in Queens has turned the traditional dumpling into a dessert.
Kung Fu Xiao Long Bao, a Chinese restaurant located in the neighborhood of Flushing in Queens, New York, offers what is called Nutella XLB.
Xiao Long Bao is a type of steamed bun that originates from the Jiangnan region of China. The rise of popular restaurants like Din Tai Fung has introduced this amazing dish to Westerners, but that doesn’t mean everyone knows how to eat it properly.
Traditionally when you eat Xiao Long Bao, one might typically bite a hole on the top first to slurp the soup inside before adding vinegar, ginger, or chili sauce and eating the rest in one bite. This is how we and every single one of our friends has done it.
