Xiao long bao in Shanghai

Xiao long bao (literally “little caged buns”) are steamed buns in bamboo baskets. The dough is so thin and the interior is filled with so much juicy meat and soup, mmm delicious! I love how the ones in Shanghai stick to the bottom of the bamboo baskets, yet when you pick them up, they get separated so easily without breaking or dropping any of the soup wrapped within 😉
