I purposely withheld myself from eating crazy at Canton so that I could feast on the pure crab meat and roe soup dumpling at Jia Jia Tang Bao. The last and only time we tried Jia Jia, we didn’t order the pure crab soup dumpling as it costed 88 RMB, a far cry from the 19.5 RMB crab roe xiaolongbao. We weren’t gonna splurge that kind of money on street food.. but boy were we wrong! Apparently, foodies come to Jia Jia mostly for their pure crab soup dumpling. This time, I made sure to try it… I’ve been regretting it for the past 2 years!
pure crab meat and roe soup dumplings… should have ate it 2 years ago.. now it costs 99RMB! We saw them wrap this.. they scooped a lot of crab meat and roe! It’s larger that the xiaolongbaos so they steam it in 2 bamboo steamers.
Apparently, you can call a day earlier and they’ll freeze the dumplings for you to bring back to your home country. We didn’t know or else I would have asked them to freeze a few dozens for me!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
