Xiao Long Bao 小笼包 , is the famous food in this restaurant (Wikipedia). It is a type of Chinese steamed bun (baozi) from Jiangsu province, especially associated with Wuxi and Shanghai (Shanghai was formerly a part of Jiangsu province). In Shanghainese, they are known as siaulon moedeu or xiaolong-style mantous as Wu Chinese-speaking peoples use the traditional definition of “mantou“, which refers to both filled and unfilled buns. It is traditionally prepared in xiaolong, which is a kind of small bamboo steaming basket, which give them their name. Xiaolongbao is often referred to as a kind of “dumpling“, but should not be confused with British or American-style dumplings, nor with Chinese jiaozi.

They are also called a soup dumpling in English-speaking countries because they are filled with hot soup (and therefore must be eaten carefully).
