Have you ever thought of whether the way of enjoying your Xiao Long Bao is right or not? Many would just ended up eating a broken dumpling with its skin detached from the meat and the wasted broth pours out onto your plate. Well, you might just say that must be noob and say, “Just pop the whole thing inside your mouth! So easy!”
Okay, you would just burn yourself easily then as the broth wrapped inside is piping hot.
But many would know that you should gently lift it up onto your spoon but what’s next?
Here’s how 🙂
- Gently lift up the soup dumpling from the basket to your spoon, placing extra care not to break the skin of the dumpling.
- Chew off a portion of the dumpling skin from the side to allow cooling of the soup broth and pork filing. Please take into consideration that the dumplings are very hot. Do not eat the entire dumpling immediately to avoid scalding. This is one thing many people forgot! 🙂
- Sip the soup from the opening you chewed off earlier!
- You could then complement with the ginger slices and vinegar. Time to chow down your dumpling! 🙂
At Paradise Dynasty (Paradigm Mall), the oriental ambiance is complement and augmented by the large white Buddha seated right in the middle. Very pretty.
Signature Dynasty Xiao Long Bao (8 Flavours) – RM25.80 (8 pcs)
Since this is their signature, it’s a must-try if it’s your first visit. And perhaps settle down with the original xiao long bao instead if you are not really into this ‘fancy-pancy colourful’ dumplings. However, we both personally enjoy these different flavoured xiao long bao as they churn out different taste that you could savour.
Oh by the way, there’s also a proper sequence that you should your XLB:
3. Foie Gras
6. Crab Roe
But instead, the first dumpling i excitedly picked up was Garlic LOL. Too much love for garlic and skipped so many milder tasting ones. Haha. It’s alright if you don’t follow though. But best if you could and not to worry if you forget which to eat first as they provide a sequence card for you on each table 🙂
La Mian with Pork Dumpling in Hot Chilli Sauce – RM16.90
La Mian is also famous in Shanghai cuisine and this time we choose to excite our palate with their Szechuan sauce tossed springy noodles. Delicious dumplings, with strands of noodles beautifully drenched in the hot chilli sauce. It’s not too spicy as we thought, it has that kicking taste with a little numbing sensation at the end.
Wok-fried rice with Shrimps & Preserved Vegetable – RM16.90
Simple fried rice that satisfied us easily. Clever use of the preserved vegetable that boosted the overall taste.
