Simply delicious. A friend of mine recently recommended that I try Jasmine Flower’s Xiao Long Bao (XLB) because of their thin skin and tasty soup. The day before we went to Long’s Noodle House and was disappointed by the texture of the XLB meat.
We ordered: 1 order of XLBs, Sticky Rice Roll, Pan Fried Pork Bun, and Shanghai Thick Noodles.
XLBs were very good. Thin skin, plenty of soup, insanely flavourful, texture of the meat ball was perfect.
Sticky rice roll, nice distribution of pickled veg, crunch donut, and plenty of pork floss.
Shanghai Thick Noodles was a massive plate. No way can two people can finish the plate with other food in one sitting. For $11 bucks, this was bigger than an Anton’s pasta dish. Sauce was perfect, plenty of shredded pork, would definitely order again.
Finally, the pan fried pork bun. Wow x 100. The soup in the middle was SOOO GOOD. Nice and crispy at the bottom, perhaps one of the best pork buns i’ve had.
Verdict: 5/5 Price was super reasonable, XLB and pan fried buns were top notch, huge noodle portions.
