Xiaolongbao VS Dumplings.I Want Both!

Friday, July 28, 2023

小笼包 (Xiǎolóngbāo) Steamed buns and 饺子 (Jiǎozi) dumplings are both delicious Chinese dumplings, but they have some fun differences. Let's take a look:

Dough and Wrappers:

小笼包 (Xiǎolóngbāo) has a thin, delicate wrapper made from a combination of wheat flour and water. Its dough is as delicate as a butterfly's wings!

饺子 (Jiǎozi), on the other hand, has a thicker and sturdier wrapper made from wheat flour and water. Its dough is strong like a superhero's shield!


小笼包 (Xiǎolóngbāo) is famous for its soup-filled filling. When you take a bite, hot soup bursts out like a tasty surprise!

饺子 (Jiǎozi), however, has a non-liquid filling. It can be filled with various ingredients, like minced meat or vegetables, creating a delicious mix of flavors in each bite.

Cooking Method:

小笼包 (Xiǎolóngbāo) is usually steamed in small bamboo baskets, just like a magical dumpling sauna! Steaming keeps the delicate wrapper tender and ensures the soup inside stays warm and tasty.

饺子 (Jiǎozi) can be boiled, steamed, or pan-fried. It's like a dumpling with multiple talents! Each cooking method gives 饺子 (Jiǎozi) a unique taste and texture.

Dipping Sauce:

小笼包 (Xiǎolóngbāo) loves to be dipped in a tangy sauce made from black vinegar and ginger. The sauce adds a zesty kick to the soup-filled delight!

饺子 (Jiǎozi) prefers a sauce made from soy sauce, vinegar, and chili oil. It's like a spicy dance party in your mouth!

Remember, whether you're team Xiaolongbao or team dumplings, the real winner is your appetite for deliciousness!
