Din Tai Fung Chef Shows the Correct Way to Eat XLB Without Burning Your Tongue

Xiao Long Bao is an art.

Thick, smooth dumpling skin with hidden treasures of juicy and savoury pork meatballs coupled with velvety broth inside form the glorious Xiao Long Bao, an iconic traditional dumpling well-loved amongst Singaporeans.

I’m only waxing poetic for the dumpling deserves as such.

Are you feeling hungry now and wish you could just pop one of those beauties into your mouth and savour it?

The Art Of Eating XLB

Oftentimes, uncultured people who haven’t mastered the art of eating Xiao Long Bao dumplings properly just throw the whole dumpling in their mouths.

And they end up burning their tongue completely because of the hot, savoury soup within.

As delicious as it looks, slowly savouring the dumpling in the proper way not only helps you to keep your tongue safe but also not waste a single drop of soup.

It tastes better this way too, trust me.

If you won’t trust me, then trust this Din Tai Fung chef, who recently demonstrated the simple yet special technique to eat Xiao Long Bao dumplings on Masterchef Australia.

Step 1:

Just pick up the dumpling by the tip with your chopsticks and dip it into the soy sauce and vinegar mixture.

Step 2:

Place the dumpling back on your spoon and poke a tiny hole at the bottom for the steaming hot soup to ooze out.

Step 3:

Not too fast, though, after all, the entire point of this is so you don’t burn your tongue.
