Shanghai – Yu Garden

with 2 comments

The weather was so much better the second day! Went to Yu Garden to have 小笼包! I was super excited because I love them and we didn’t get to try them the previous time.

The place where 小笼包 originate from.

We ordered the xie huang xiao long baos and it was to die for! I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever had. The soup inside was simply heavenly!

Xiao long bao are little balls of minced pork combined with jellified pork or chicken stock wrapped in a thin flour skin. During the steaming process, the stock liquefies creating soup within the dumpling. This is key, the pièce de résistance. The combination of flavors and textures makes this “snack” worth traveling for.

And this marks the end of a short trip to Shanghai T___T seriously should try to stay for a longer period the next time I go.
