My favorite part was the pork and chive soup dumplings. I learned that these xiǎolóngbāo (小笼包) require cubes of broth jelly. The cubes are wrapped up with the filling and, when steamed, fill the pouches with a delicious soup. I had these dumpling for the first time at Din Tai Fung in Tokyo. I could eat them every day for the rest of my life.
