Mama’s Dumpling & Coffee |
Oh Mama! I’m trying to find the best soup dumplings aka Xiao Long Bao (XLB) in Greater Vancouver. Please hit me up if you know of a good XLB place ^_^
These < XLBs > were decent. There was a decent amount of soup in the dumplings. The dumpling skin is a little too thick, imo. Most importantly, it didn’t come with ginger and vinegar, the essentials to eating XLBs.
The < Fried Pork Buns > were a bit disappointing. It took them about 30 minutes to make, as they had warned us, and they weren’t exactly the greatest. It didn’t have enough filling, and wasn’t very juicy either. The only compliment I’d give for it, is that it did have a crispy bottom.
It’s kind of odd for a Chinese dumpling house to serve coffee, but I guess their name is self-explanatory. The < Caffe Latte > was acceptable. Wasn’t bad, wasn’t great. It was kind of nice that I could get my coffee fix here. It doesn’t go well with the dumplings though. .
