It's difficult enough to find an acceptable pork or crab Xiao Long Bao, but we're seeing a few interesting XLB variations around the Bay Area. For a food so popular you can buy it frozen at Ranch 99, it's nice to see some creativity. I know of the following:
My China has truffle XLB which cost $18. Reports so far suggest it's not justifiably better than the standard issue:
Benu has a lobster coral XLB and used to have foie gras XLB.
American Bao Bar has a red curry chicken XLB that sounds interesting. Anyone had it?
Any other sightings? Any vegetarian versions?
