Balanced Soup Dumplings And Much More At 3 Times

3 Times

Gently lift the dumpling, slowly carry it to your spoon, open the skin and then drink the soup. So goes the translation of a Chinese proverb explaining how to eat xiao long bao, the wildly popular dumplings known for their soupy filling. How you choose to get to the soup by piercing the wrapper or biting off the dumplings topknot is immaterial it all leads to the same end.

Xiao long bao are commonly linked to Shanghai specifically Nan Xiang, the town where some believe they originated. These dumplings are thriving in New York City: Two longtime specialists, Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao in Flushing and Joes Shanghai in Manhattan, recently reopened with glitzy, expanded dining rooms.

The latest entrant is 3 Times, on the Lower East Side , where the chief executive and co-owner, Jason Zhu, is confident that he has something better.

At both locations, the characteristically intricate pleats of each xiao long bao are tight and neat. The dough is supple enough that the bottoms sag under the weight of the soup, but sturdy enough to prevent breakage. Mixed-grain dough is also available, with a touch of buckwheat that makes the skins tanned and speckled.

Equipped with a bigger kitchen and gas burners, the Lower East Side location also offers a variety of entrees . I enjoyed the pillowy texture of basa fillets in the braised fish with green peppercorns, but ultimately, preferred making a meal of assorted small plates.

Because Soup Dumplings Are Bite

Soup dumplings also known as xiao long bao are insanely delicious. If youve never had them, you are missing out. Seriously.

So what are soup dumplings? Well, they are exactly what they sound like dumplings full of soup genius. These juicy dumplings are made by folding a thin circle of stretchy dough around a gelatin-rich meat filling, usually pork or pork and crab.

The dough is then gathered up and pleated into an adorable tiny swirled bun. As the dumplings are steamed, the gelatin-rich broth in the meat filling melts out and fills the steamed pod with savory soup.

But youve gotta be extra cautious when eating soup dumplings because of their delicate nature. Be sure to carefully suck out the soup before digging in the rest of the delicious dumpling.

Where To Get Good Soup Dumplings In Nyc

For centuries, xiaolongbao , literally meaning little basket buns and referred to in English as soup dumplings, have been a cherished delicacy in China. Chefs have experimented with seafood, meat, and other savory flavors to create the most delicious recipe imaginable.

To prepare the steamed buns, chefs would knead dough made of dumpling flour for the perfect consistency. Afterward, they would add an aspic, a gelatin-like substance, of meaty flavors inside each dumpling. Once the dough is folded into tiny buns, the dumplings are steamed in a bamboo steamer to melt the aspic, creating a soupy texture.

For decades, chefs have opened restaurants in NYC to bring these delicious recipes to locals. As time passed, soup dumplings became a favorite for many New Yorkers of various walks of life.
