Best Dumplings in the World

These are so, so good. A different league than any other. Each has it's own tiny serving of broth on the inside: pick it up with chopsticks and put it on a spoon, bite a tiny hole to let the broth seep out and enjoy.

    Hey, your instructions sound exactly like the instructions that they provide at the Din Tai Fung here in Los Angeles (Arcadia) - do they provide them at the Taipei restaurant as well? Their dumplings are so yummy.

    And that is why I have a mild obsession for Xiao Loong Bao. Soupy porky dumpling goodness!

    Chanuck - they don't speak much English at the restaurant (and I only get as far as "hao" and 'xie xie") so this was told to me by a companion. Is the one in LA a satellite? That'd be good (and hope for one here!)

    qbots - where do you get them in Vancouver?
  • qbots 8y

    The Place - way south Granville
    Shanghai River - Richmond
    Both are known for their XLB. There's another place called Chen's (Richmond, I think) that I haven't tried yet.

    Stewart - Yes, the one in LA is the only branch in North America (for now, anyway). It's in Arcadia, about 20 miles east of the Yahoo Burbank offices, if you've ever visited there. The paper wrapper for the chopsticks have the instructions that you listed.

    qbots - I'm gonna check out those places the next time I'm in Vancouver. Thanks!
