Subang Jaya: Xiao Loong Bao @ Asia Cafe

From wiki Xiǎolóngbāo, also known as soup dumpling,[1] is a type of baozi from eastern China, including Shanghai and Wuxi. It is traditionally steamed in small bamboo baskets, hence the name (xiaolong is literally “small steaming basket”).

In recent years, there are so many established that had mushroomed in serving dish like xiao loong bao around the Klang Valley… prices varies depending on where you have them. I like the one in Midvalley but that’s close to RM10 per order.

For economical and yet practical and good xiao loong bao, I like to just drop by Asia Cafe in SS15, Subang Jaya. There’s a stall here operated by a young guy from China.

Their xiao loong bao is RM5 for 5 pieces and you usually have to wait quite long for it, at least 20 to 30 mins most of the time as it takes time to steam and they have a long order queue for it usually.

The xiao loong bao test is always how good it holds the juice inside and this one hold them very well but yet the skin is not too thick. The juice taste good and so are the meat but the vinegar/ginger used to go with it is just normal.

So for an affordable and good xiao loong bao, I would recommend this place, also try out their deep fried yam, very good too ;).
