An Intro to Dumplings
While the Dumpling Trail is home to countless regional varieties of Asian dumplings, these are often considered the most popular:
Xiao Long Bao give an addictive Shanghainese take on dumplings, stuffed with pork and a tantalizing soup.
Har Gow are dangerously delicious shrimp dumplings wrapped in a tapioca starch pastry.
Siu Mai are not only beautiful, they’re delicious—stuffed with pork, shrimp, and topped with salmon roe or sometimes a whole prawn.
