  • By on February 5, 2010 | 2 Comments

    Most of you know Xiao Long Bao, one of the famous Chinese steamed dumplings where the recipe was origin from Shanghai. Known as Bao Zi, the traditional cuisine filled with pork and there is other variety of other meats, seafood and vegetables.

    Our food craving continue with the hunt of the special dumpling recipe in the heart of Hualien.

    Except this round I am going solo hunting because all my friends want to go shopping 😀

    I wander around the street of Hualien City and found the shop name Gong Zheng Bao Zi (公正包子) which sell Xiao Long Bao (小龙包) and Jian Jiao (煎饺).

    Time for late night snack? The one person mix snack set of Xiao Long Bao and Jian Jiao cost me 40NTD.

    Looks delicious and these dumplings will give good taste tonight 🙂


    One of the Gong Zheng Bao Zi (公正包子) specialty was their sauce recipe which was mixed with chili, vinegar and soy sauce.

    Dip the Jian Jiao into the sauce if you love spicy taste and I bet you will never regret it by doing so.

    The fresh Jian Jiao will cost you 3NTD each time you pop into your mouth. The food is cheap and the taste is good 🙂


    Close up look on the Xiao Long Bao which cost 5NTD per piece.

    You should notice the difference of the Bao Zi you saw here with Shanghai Xiao Long Bao.

    The taste is simple with less juicy meat in the hot steamed bun.

    Frankly, I love the overall simplicity taste and ordered another two more extra Xiao Long Bao in the end of the meal 🙂
