ah wei jing dian xiao long bao


AH WEI JING DIAN 


Tucked away in a crevice at Chinese Garden is Ah Wei Jing Dian, a humble stall that sells a variety of scrumptious and affordable Chinese food. Each bamboo basket comes with 6 pieces of juicy, fat xiao long baos that are just waiting to be popped open.

Chuan Qee Xiao Long Bao


CHUAN QEE 


Chuan Qee is hidden away in a nondescript coffee shop at Macpherson. No one would expect that this no-frills stall would sell such delectable, restaurant-quality xiao long baos at such low prices. One bamboo basket contains 8 large dumplings that are chock full of meaty goodness and savoury soup.

TIAN JING LA MIAN XIAO LONG BAO 


Tian Jing La Mian Xiao Long Bao is located in a corner of Hougang and here, they serve up baskets of simple yet satisfyingly juicy xiao long baos that are great for when the xiao long bao cravings hit. We recommend that you order some of their la mian to go with it!

Yi Dian Xin XLB


YI DIAN XIN 


Yi Dian Xin is a gem at Upper Serangoon that serves up an array of affordable, quality dim sum. One of our favourite things to order here, of course, is their xiao long bao. The only downside to this place is the fact that each basket only comes with 3 dumplings so you have to order a few baskets depending on how ravenous you are.

YOU PENG NOODLE DUMPLING HOUSE


Tucked away at Beauty World Centre is You Peng Noodle Dumpling House. The dumplings here are served piping hot and fresh, so be careful when you bite into one, you don’t want to burn your tongue! We recommend that you have a basket of this with their zha jiang mian; they go together really well!

zhong guo la mian xiao long bao xiao long bao


ZHONG GUO LA MIAN XIAO LONG BAO 


Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao is definitely one of the more well known and popular ones on this list. Their stall at Chinatown Complex never fails to have a snaking long queue, but its totally worth it just to get your hands on a basket of this goodness. The skin to meat ratio of the dumplings here is perfect and you can watch them make the dumplings for you by hand through the glass window of the stall.

Zi Yean Xiao Long Bao


ZI YEAN BISTRO 


Zi Yean Bistro is known for their unique and unusual dim sum such as their Cream Of Yam In Watermelon Bun as well as their Steamed Black Truffle Mushroom Bun. Aside from that, however, we also love to order a basket of their classic xiao long baos. The xiao long baos here are the definition of a well-made xiao long bao, and we appreciate the perfect skin to filling ratio as well as how juicy the fillings are.
