Sheng Jian Bao 生煎包

At first glance they looked like our normal Siomai here in the Philippines. As I looked closer I learned that they are actually fried as their bottoms are toasted.

I could really describe the taste. It was more than what I was expecting. A small dumpling was oozing with so much flavor. It was a bit of every taste and it seemed like the more you much on it the more different it tastes like.

I paid about $35NT for a pack of 10, really cheap compared to our local Siomai here in Manila. I guess food is relatively cheap in Taiwan, and I like it!

  1. Oooooh I looooove dumplings! But I prefer steamed ones, not so much fried. Pero keri pa rin naman. :)

    Btw, I might go to Taiwan soon. Sana matuloy ang sponsorship. I'll try this out then.
