Stinky Tofu Xiao Long Bao – 上海邵师傅汤包

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.
