This isn't your typical xiaolongbao as the soup is outside the bao. They do serve it without the soup as well, which baffles me as xiao long bao is all about the soup inside, if not it'll just be like a regular dumpling. Their soup is unique, with it being rather rich and salty. The texture tasted a bit like collagen soup. This is worth a try but our hearts are still with traditional xlb and probably won't get this again.
