Xiao Long Baos are essentially mini soup dumplings originated from Jiang Nan China and served in bamboo baskets; in our words, little dumplings of happiness. It is a widely coveted dim sum dish in many Chinese restaurants and has won countless hearts with its hearty soup base tucked within the confines of a thin skin. A pretty Xiao Long Bao, thereafter known as XLB, is one that is sealed with multiple exquisite folds around its crown.
Many restaurants have since tried to perfect their own version of XLB, with a varying use of ingredients and preparation methods. Most of them have since started to use alternative ingredients to fluff up their XLBs up to stand out from the crowd.
In this guide, we share 8 Xiao Long Baos in Singapore that we love, and we hope you love them too!
