Chinese Soup Dumpling
is a type of Chinese steamed bun (baozi) from the Jiangnan region, especially associated with Shanghai and Wuxi. It is traditionally prepared in Xiaolong, which is a kind of small bamboo steaming basket, which give them their name. Xiaolongbao is often referred to as a kind of "dumpling", but should not be confused with British or American-style dumplings, nor with Chinese jiaozi. Similarly, they are considered a kind of "soup dumpling" but should not be confused with other larger varieties of tang bao. In Shanghainese, they are also sometimes known as siaulon moedeu or xiaolong-style mantous.
How to Eat Soup Dumplings
- Pick it up very carefully using chopsticks, and place it in a large spoon
- Add dipping sauce of your choice (usually vinegar)
- Using a chopstick to poke a hole into the wrapper of the dumpling to release steam
My wife and I met over 20 years ago, and our passion has always been creating good comfort food. We came from two different regions of China, and that gave us the opportunity to create such a diversified menu. We both strongly believe in using fresh ingredients, combining traditional cooking method with modern cooking techniques. Our food has bold, and yet delicate flavors.
Coming from Los Angeles, there is no satisfying dumpling places in Austin. So why not have our own? All of our dumpling recipes are my wife's creation as we used to eat either noodles or dumplings almost every week at home!
