This is no Din Tai Fung, but I reckon it's still pretty famous. The first time I was here with my mum and some Thai friends. My mum heard about the place from her friends. At that time, I still didn't eat pork, so I didn't know what their xiaolongbao tasted like. After I found out about the baby, I started to lose interest in my favourite food - chicken. The books said that too much seafood might cause allergies, so I had to start eating pork for a balanced diet. So I had an errand to run in the neighbourhood, and asked my friend to join me this time, to finally get the chance to taste some yummy xiaolongbao.
So for a balanced diet, I took two plate of green veggies!
Voila! Today's main dish - xiaolongbao.
You must try it while it's still hot (though you must be careful not to burn yourself). Indeed, it tasted fabulous! It is recommended that you dip it in some ginger and vinegar for best taste, but since I don't like ginger, vinegar itself did the job!
And then, there was some shrimp xiaomai. We were wondering whether to order shrimp or crab, and decided on shrimp. I reckon there couldn't be that much shrimp, so should be okay. Again, while hot, it tasted superb! Especially with a bit of vinegar!
However, us two girls found it a bit difficult to finish all this food (keep in mind my appetite wasn't that good at this point).
I feel obliged to remind you again, that you must eat all these steamed goodies while hot! Once cold, the flour bit will become hard, and the taste won't be as good. So I suggest that you order one thing at a time, to ensure that each and every item you order can be eaten while hot!
