First, the video from TIme Out London. Close your eyes if you are a XLB lover:
Inevitably with a video like that, an uproar from the food loving world ensued.
Finally, the apology from Time Out London.
‘Secondly, we’d like to invite the knowledgeable food-lovers of China and Asia to tell us what traditional delicacies we Londoners should try - and how to eat them properly.’
Surely there must be a few hundred thousand Londoners who know how to eat a xiao long bao, including probably half the dining room who ordered XLB at Dumplings Legend that day? There is enough appetite for Din Tai Fung to open a branch in London in a couple of months! And you guys are Time Out London!!!
Someone online mentioned that its like peeling all the batter off from the fish in fish and chips.
