Unique Xiao Long Bao Flavours you can find in Singapore

Eating Xiao Long Baos have never been the same

Xiao Long Bao is a staple of Chinese cuisine. Easy to make, but difficult to make perfectly, it has become a true art form. And Paradise Group might just have taken this art form to another level with their colourful xiao long bao.

Every bite is a new adventure with colourful xiao long bao

Typically, xiao long bao is handmade with precision and the utmost care. Served in a small basket (“xiao long”), the pork dumplings are usually eaten with vinegar and ginger garnishing.

While delicious as it is, Paradise Group’s 8 signature colourful xiao long bao pushes the flavour to another level. Each colour has its own distinct taste due to different ingredients.

The colourful xiao long bao at Paradise Group has continued to impress customers far and wide.
