Learn Chinese in China

Xiao Lung Bao (Steamed Soup Dumpling)


Recommended Posts


xiaolongbao and shaomai are not the same. The photo above is xiaolongbao [note that it is served with vinegar (sometimes with ginger)].

This is shaomai ->


Thanks Skylee. What kind of seeds (sesam?) are on the shaomai, I've never eaten seeded shaomai.

btw a couple (husband & wife) I know very well will visit China soon and stay a day in Shanghai. They don't know any Chinese, so I've been searching Shanghai maps and looking for that restaurant's location to give them a precise guide.

Hope I've got it right (never been in China):

Name of restaurant: Jia Jia Tang Bao ( 佳 家 湯 包 )


Former Nanshi District (Old Town), I believe it's now a part of Huangpu District, although the map shows differently (see below map):



The restaurant is situated near the crossing of Henan NanLu (Southern part of Henan Road) with Wenmiao Lu (Wenmiao Road):


btw I believe xlb is a relatively 'new' dish, isn't it? (I mean, it's beginning to be popular about the last 50 years)



Full address of restaurant:

佳家湯包 , 河南南路 638 號 ( 文廟路口 )

Jia Jia Tang Bao, 638 South Henan Road (by Wenmiao Road), ( 021 ) 6366-3570
