Surprisingly tasty 'Made in USA' Soup Dumpling, XLB at a Korean Supermarket ( H-Mart)!

Charles Yu | Dec 2, 201404:15 PM     10

Whether they were produced locally or imported, frozen Shanghainese Soup Dumplings XLB, made famous by Ding Tai Fung, can now be found in almost all Asian supermarkets. As to whether their quality is up to par, that is another question? In most cases, wrappers are found to be thick and easily broken, fillings stingy and the broth lacking in complexity and insufficient in quantity.

Today, whilst shopping for Kimchee products at the Korean Supermarket 'H-Mart' on Yonge and Major Mac, I noticed this attractively packaged new product selling for $2.99 a packet of 10 morsels.

I bought both the plain pork and crab meat versions home to try.

Man! Were they good and incredible value for the money! Sure, size might be daintier and wrappers might not be as thin as your typical restaurant versions. However, the amount of umami filled broth and the tasty meat filling can easily rub shoulder with most Dumpling Eateries in town. For that price and quality, I am not complaining!

Not bad! Not bad at all!
