All hail the soup dumpling! Chinese soup dumplings, called xiao long bao (or “XLB” for short), were lamentably scarce in Portland until XLB appeared in January 2017. Pockets of paper-thin dough surrounding a bite of meat and piping hot broth, XLB are notoriously tricky to make — and eat. (Treat that steaming broth with care!) This laid-back North Williams spot serves up these treasures along with steam buns, stir fries and other authentic Chinese street food.
