When you’re wondering around in the city and your xiao long bao cravings hit, you hit it back by getting them XLB into your belly. I love trying new places I haven’t been to and walking past New Taipei, we steered right in. We were greeted by friendly staff and there weren’t a lot of customers yet so we quickly grabbed a table. Mr D got the Sichuan Style chilled poached chicken dry la mian and it was bloody fantastic. It was quite spicy (for me anyway) but it was quite refreshing and full of flavour. The noodles had a bite to it and my gosh Mr D was going to town on this dish.
Sichuan Style Chilled Poached Chicken Dry La Mian – $12.80
I got the XLB and it was a touch on the expensive side BUT they were pretty darn good. The skin was thin and soft, the filling was delish and combined with the juice, it was frigging HEAVEN!
Xiao Long Bao (8 pc) – $11.50
New Taipei definitely cured my XLB cravings and the dry la mian was awesome sauce. We will definitely be back here if we’re wondering the streets of Melbourne and the XLB craving hits.
