XIAO LONG BAO
Utilizing a traditional approach, we introduce aspic to a delectable blend of seasoned poultry, succulent Berkshire-Duroc pork, and the freshest crab meat. Upon steaming, this aspic transforms into a rich and savory broth, encapsulating the essence of each ingredient within our traditional dumpling. This magical metamorphosis takes place within the confines of a charming bamboo basket, an homage to our dumpling's humble origins and the inspiration behind its name: Xiao (small) Long (basket) Bao (bun).
Three distinct pillars of craftsmanship guide our creation of the Xiao Long Bao. The delicate yet resilient skin cradles the flavorful broth within. Our filling, a union of high-quality meats, harmoniously marries with a secret recipe aspic, and our wrapping technique ensures that each Xiao Long Bao is perfectly sealed, promising an eruption of flavors with every bite.
Rooted in the heritage of Shanghai's renowned Sheng Jian Bao (Pan Fried Buns), our Q-Bao introduces an innovative twist that sets it apart. The key distinction lies in the dough that is skillfully designed to hold the soupy filling, ensuring that every mouthful delivers a harmonious blend of textures and flavors.
Bursting with flavors, our Q-Bao is generously filled with succulent Berkshire-Duroc pork, infused with aspic that provides each bite with an explosion of taste. The buns are carefully steamed, allowing the flavors to meld and flourish. Then, a masterful touch of pan frying imparts a delicate crispiness to the bottom, while maintaining a perfect softness on top.
Szechuan's renowned "Dan Dan Noodle" is one of our signature dishes at Dough Zone. We've infused our unique sauce into this dish, elevating the incredible chili flavor and numbing Szechuan peppercorns to new heights.
Topped with a medley of fresh green onion and preserved mustard greens, the dish is a visual and culinary delight. To prepare the Dan Dan Noodles, simply mix all the elements with our freshly made springy noodles, and you'll experience the harmonious marriage of flavors and textures that make every bite a revelation.
These classic Chinese dumplings are well known worldwide, with their origin dating back to over 1,000 years. These succulent thin-skinned dumplings are called “guo tie” (鍋貼) in Mandarin and translated to English as “Pot Stickers.”
Our potstickers are first pan steamed to create a soft texture and a juicy filling. As the water evaporates, the bottom becomes golden crispy and a beautiful iconic lattice skirt develops. The skirt adds extra crispiness that is both a pleasure to your palate and eyes. 4 different varieties of pot stickers are available to choose from which includes chicken, vegetable, beef, and pork & shrimp!
