Originally, Xiaolongbao or literally translated as small steaming basket bun is a steamed bun filled with pork. As this little bun evolves, there are many variations by geographical in China. One of the well-known versions includes the popular Shanghainese Xiaolongbao that appears like a soup dumpling. A mouthful size, they are usually served in a bamboo basket over a layer of napa cabbage. These little dumplings are encased within the smooth and thin skin, containing substantial amount of delectable soup. Some restaurants even offer a straw for the diner to slowly enjoy the steaming hot soup before consuming the dumpling and its filling. That's the story of Shanghai-style Xiaolongbao!
And if you ask any fans of Shanghai-style Xiaolongbao (小笼馒头) in Penang, they will direct you to Dragon-i Restaurant in Queensbay Mall.
Famed for Xiaolongbao and Shanghainese La Mien or 'hand pulled noodle', Dragon-i is regarded as an upscale Chinese restaurant with superior food. Demonstrating the theme of ancient Chinese with display of terracotta stone miniatures, the restaurant strives to share with diners a pleasant culinary experience prepared by high-skilled chefs from mainland China.
Our recent visit to QB Mall landed us with a chance to savor at Dragon-i, marking our three months journey with our little one!
Check out what we had.
Food and service are fantastic, just need a deeper pocket if were to visit too often .
