Ms.Lim Meng Lu is the owner of Din Tai Fung Malaysia

This is a Shanghainese specialty, named after the small bamboo steamer (xiao long) it’s typically served in. Xiao Long Bao should be sheathed by a skin that’s delicately thin yet resilient enough to encase its steaming, soupy contents. The art of making Xiao Long Bao, a dumpling nimbly crafted by the most expert dim sum chef should boast an amazing number of tidy little folds. Count them, 18 at least, in good hands of a master chef.
