Verdict

小湯包 – 7/10
酸辣湯 – 6/10

Many Taiwanese bloggers rave about this little authentic shop in Yilan.  One of the must ‘visit’ snack shop in this area.  There are two branches and I went to the one in Jiaoxi which is nearer to my hotel.  It was after lunch time when I made the visit so there was a table free.  The shop front looks really unappealing, nothing near modern, even the furniture inside were very worn out but is exactly their style.  This shop has been here for years and it is very popular, selling only a few dishes.  their specialty has to be the Xiao Long Bao 小湯包 which comes in ten pieces and only cost 70 NT.  It does not come in a steamer like how they usually do in a restaurant, but comes stacked up on a plate that caused the Xiao Long Bao sticking onto each other after getting cold.  So half of the Xiao Long Baos were ripped while trying to pull out one.  Some of the Xiao Long bao had soup in them, very juicy indeed, however the rest was dry and tasteless.  I probably won’t come back again, but for that price it is a good quick and cheap eat indeed.

Would I go back again? Probably not
