I never liked shaomi because it's simply just a chunk of meat. But this one is the combination of xiao long bao and shaomi and I like the soup. The only feedback is if the skin can be even thinner.
Our nephew is a bit of a soup dumpling snob, and not too many places he will like besides the obvious ones like Ding Tai. But, he said the chicken soup dumplings at Trader's a a contender. But, he tried this soup shrimp sui mai - he's hooked. I don't think my bag of 20 will cut it this round, will need to ensure we get 40 next time for sure or more! Delicious! Just need to figure out how to not lose all my soup when I pick it up from the steamer!
Family loves this! First time we tried the pork shrimp shaomai, already love the XLB, did not disappoint! So easy to make and so easy to plop in our mouth! Yum! Will buy again!
The detail to flavor is incredible- the tiny shrimp combined with the explosive soup flavor and meat filling is sheer perfection!
Will buy again soon.
awesome. must eat dish. You won't regret!!
I mean these are cute and you definitely get a little shrimp treat versus the traditional pork XLB… but I still prefer the original with the thinner wrapper. It’s more *cute* than anything.
