Soup dumplings with crab meat are wrapped in extremely thin dough and steamed to perfection.
The dumpling, with its fillings made of minced pork, crab meat and roe, has a very thin wrapper and plenty of tasty soup. It looks like a flower with a bit of crab roe placed on top of each dumpling.
Special care needs to be taken to make sure the skin remains intact before eating to keep the soup inside the skin.
Unlike another kind of soup dumpling in China, which requires a straw to finish the soup inside first, you can dip this dumpling in vinegar and eat it directly to enjoy the burst of soup in your mouth.
