Originated from China, Xiaolongbao is a famous dumpling dish that people usually call Soup Dumpling since you can slurp pipping hot soup from inside the dumpling. The cooking process requires great technique since they need to keep the skin elastic so it won’t break when served. In Jakarta, one of the famous places for Xiaolongbao is none other than Din Tai Fung. For holiday season, Din Tai Fung launched several seasonal menu including the GIANT XIAO LONG BAO that got me excited!!

The best part from this giant xiaolongbao would be the comforting broth that is full of umami, but on the other side, there wasn’t much filling inside the dumpling and the skin was thicker than the normal ones, but still it was a unique eating experience by taking xiaolongbao to the next level. Let’s Jajan!!
