The Chinese Food You Can’t Miss-Xiao Long Bao
Xiaolongbao, also known as soup dumplings, is a popular Chinese delicacy that has gained international recognition. These delightful steamed buns are characterized by their thin, delicate skin and flavorful fillings. Here's an introduction to Xiaolongbao:
Xiaolongbao originated from Shanghai and has become a beloved dish worldwide. The name "xiaolongbao" translates to "little basket buns" in English, referring to the traditional bamboo baskets used to steam them.
小笼包 (xiǎo lóng bāo) - Xiaolongbao
"小" (xiǎo) - Small
I love eating Xiaolongbao at the dim sum restaurant.
