4 Best Places to Eat Xiao Long Bao in Taiwan

I have never seen this kind of message in my fortune cookie but...apparently it's quite common? Hahaha. 

If you really get hungry again in one hour, how about eating something small, light, and yet yummy just like these xiao long bao (of course I am assuming that you are not gonna eating the whole portion by yourself). Taiwan has the best xiao long bao that I have ever tasted in my whole life and here are 4 best places to eat xiao long bao in Taiwan. 

1. Din Tai Fung

Everyone of you who loves to eat xiao long bao has surely heard about a restaurant named Din Tai Fung. Din Tai Fung was actually originated in Taiwan and it has subsequently grown bigger and bigger first in Asia and then, throughout the world. Din Tai Fung in Taiwan and Singapore both always have long queue in front of their door. So if you happen to visit Taipei 101, make sure you pop by to Din Tai Fung which is located below at the shopping mall for a taste of their famous truffle xiao long bao.

2. Hang Zhou Xiao Long Bao

Being known as one of the favorite xiao long bao joint among the locals (who somehow does not really like to go to Din Tai Fung), Hang Zhou Xiao Long Bao is located near to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. You need to walk a fair bit from exit 5 of Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall Station but the walk is so gonna worth the food. Hang Zhou's Xiao Long Bao taste nearly as good as Din Tai Fung and you do not have to wait for so long for a table.

3. Kao Chi

Kao Chi is located very near to Din Tai Fung at Yongkang Street (which is a few steps from Dongmen Station) and hence, it has become one of our alternative to eat Xiao Long Bao especially when the queue at Din Tai Fung is too crazy to bear. Xiao Long Bao sold at Kao Shi also tastes pretty nice and you should give Kao Chi a try whenever you visit Yongkang Street or Zhongxiao Fuxing.

4. Gong Zheng Bao Zi

The last xiao long bao that I am gonna share with you guys looks kinda different from its three siblings above. The xiao long bao actually resembles Chinese buns more than the normal xiao long bao. However, the xiao long bao from Gong Zheng Bao Zi is like the best xiao long bao I have ever tasted in Taiwan.
