I've been looking with no success. I've started ordering XCJ frozen soup dumplings. Actually really good from frozen after an 18 minute steam.

My best guess is Saigon Market in Manchester- I keep meaning to go there and look but havent gotten around to it yet.

Dover has Hong Noodle bar. Only place I know of in the state that does soup dumplings.

The best I've seen is Sun Shui in Bedford. They will occasionally have "mini buns" that are small XLB.

My wife makes them a couple of times a year. She's in Singapore right now taking cooking lessons. We haven't had these at a restaurant in a long time, probably in Boston.

Not to derail the topic, but do you remember where in Boston you had them? I'd love to try authentic ones, and I'm taking a trip there soon.

There were two restaurants in Chinatown. I think that they were both the type where you had to walk up a long flight of stairs to get to the dining area.

Jo Jo Taipei in Allston has yummy soup dumplings, I haven't been there in ages though. Trader Joe's sells frozen soup dumplings that are better then nothing!

We’re big fans of Xiao Long Bao. There are a few places in Portland, ME we frequent:

  • Sichuan Kitchen
  • Empire Kitchen

Both are on Congress, walking distance to each other. Sichuan has some amazing, authentic Sichuan food as well (hot).

This isn't the same but Trader Joe's sells soup dumplings that are good in a pinch!

I was thinking about checking out TJ's or Whole Foods to see what they had to offer. Thanks for the tip!
