In fact, Jingle Bao has become one of my go-to places for pork soup dumplings in Vancouver.
They make them in-house and you can even watch the chefs create them through the open kitchen.
I was invited for a media tasting where I tried a few old favourites and other items I have not tried yet.
The pork soup dumplings are available in classic and other flavours including spinach, curry, sriracha, mushroom truffle, shrimp and garlic. The flavours are differentiated by different coloured wrappers, hence “Rainbow Dumplings.”
The “Magnificent Seven” item on the menu is the one where you will get 7 different flavoured pork soup dumplings.
While Jingle Bao specializes in house-made dumplings, you’ll also find Taiwanese street-style snacks, dim sum, and Cantonese-style mains.
I enjoyed the Taiwanese Salt & Pepper Chicken; the Seafood with Sticky Rice (which had tiger prawns, scallop and squid); and the Molten Custard Salted Egg Buns 流沙包.
