Creative flavors and unique styling – fun little XLB store near Liuzhangli
Two of my favorite things in one! Stinky tofu, and xiao long baos. I first visited this little spot 6 months ago on one of my first foodie meet ups. From Instagram friends to real friends, meeting up with strangers online has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in Taiwan (Sorry Mom).
Since then I’ve thought and talked about this place to many people. The xiao long baos at 上海邵师傅汤包 are so exciting to me! I love that it’s opened and run by locals who wanted to take the classic xiao long bao and dumpling and create something new with them.
Each XLB (xiao long bao) costs around 80ntd and you can choose to have them steamed or fried. We picked fried for the stinky tofu, and I love how they stack the dumplings. Very photogenic!
For the mapo tofu and zajiang we chose steamed dumplings as they’re more saucy flavors. Someone on Reddit said they look like little forests, and I didn’t think I could fall in love with dumplings, but I did just then.

Stinky tofu and zajiang xiao long baos – second time here in a year. Love the creativity wish there were more experimental and unique xlb flavors in Taiwan, but I’ve only had dumplings like this at 上海邵師傅湯包 – despite the fun flavors and plating it can get too salty here and take a while per order 😗still worth going at least once in my opinion ————— 📍 上海邵師傅湯包 🗺 Taipei City, Da’an District, Leli Road, 31-1號 💰 80ntd~ (diff prices for diff flavors)
