There is one thing we can't resist -- the yummy goodness of Xiao Long Pao, often referred to as "soup dumplings". The best Xiao Long Pao here in Manila is found in Shi Lin (they have branches in Podium, PowerPlant Mall, and The Fort). But we go to Shi Lin Podium most of the time.
What makes it 'the best'? -- the soup inside the soft delicate bun makes all the difference! It is steamed to perfection. Almost like an art form. No other restaurant around the metro comes close to this one, most of them serve overcooked Xiao Long Pao, with the soup inside all dried up.
My 7 year old daughter is so hooked with this dimsum dish, she wants to eat it on a weekly, if possible on a daily basis! She can gulp up 8-10 pcs. on one sitting!
Prices are also reasonable. Best paired with their Fried Rice with shrimp, pork and egg! The Fried Porkchop is also a winner!
