Best Xiao Long Bao (Soup Dumplings) in Toronto

3:47:00 PM

Xiao long bao (XLB), or soup dumplings is a popular food originating from Shanghai. They are one of my most favourite dishes. They are like little dough type dumplings like you get at dim sum, filled with a pork or pork/crab mixture. Some soup broth is chill it until it becomes an aspic, dice it finely, and add it to the stuffing mix. When steamed, the aspic turns back into a broth, so the inside of the dumpling is filled with this wonderful soup, which is really flavorful with all of the pork and pork/crab mixture cooked in it.

I have sampled many xiao long baos across Toronto restaurants.


Here is the list of my top picks for XLB if you are craving some starting with the best.
