If you haven’t tried their popular XLB yet, now’s the perfect time to do so because of the special salted egg version of it (it’s ₱168 for 5 pieces)! But if you’re on the fence about this new item on the menu, here’s why you should order it according to looloo reviewers:

“Every dumpling had a robust orange color which was unlike the typical pale white color of a usual serving. Also, every bite radiated with the sharp and distinct flavor of soup infused with salted egg. I must say that the salty flavor blended all too well with the meaty core.”–Manfred M.

“I was pleasantly surprised when I tried one. The salted egg flavor was subtle. You know that it’s there and you can taste it but it won’t distract you from the fact that you’re eating Xiao Long Bao. It’s good on its own without having to dip it into the vinegar.”–Bella J.

“Once the burst of the warm soup hits your tastebuds as soon as you take a bite, a bumrush of flavors explode. The feeling takes you back during the days you soak your Oreo cookie in milk just before the cookie breaks. I loved that the salted egg wasn’t overpowering. You’ll want to break out into your “good food” dance.”–Rocky R.

For maximum enjoyment, don’t forget to order your Salted Egg Xiao Long Bao with a side of Fat Fook’s flavorful Kiampong or Taiwan Style Fried Rice!
