MELBOURNE & SYDNEY | We’re big fans of the xiao long bao at Din Tai Fung, with the tasty soup filled dumplings always hitting the spot when the dumpling cravings start. In an answer to a problem that didn’t exist, the folks at Din Tai Fung, inspired perhaps by the recent trend that’s been spotted in the USA, have launched a giant xiao long bao, that’s seven times larger than the regular version.

It’s got the same pork and prawn filling that Din Tai Fung’s regular xiao long bao has, and we’re keen to see how the flavour to dumpling skin ratio holds up. If you’re wondering how you’ll be able to eat this thing, it’s served with a thick straw, the kind you get with bubble tea. Alternatively, you could wait until it’s cooled down and throw it at your dining companion’s head while their mouth is wide open. Probably best to go for the first option.

You could just order seven regular xiao long bao, but we think the giant version will be a lot more fun. Grab one at any time for $8.90 throughout November 2106 in Sydney at Din Tai Fung World Square, Central Park, Westfield Chatswood and Westfield Miranda, and in Melbourne at Emporium.
