Xiao Long Bao is a menu similar to dim sum with chicken inside it and filled with soup.
Xiao Long Bao should be treated with careful method since if it doesn’t it might damage the menu served
Each Xiao Long Bao must be weighed one by one so that it has the same weight and must have the same fold, which is 18 folds.
The reason to give Xiao Long Bao 18 folds is to make the shape of the food good and perfect. If you don't follow the 18 fold rule, the Xiao Long Bao, which is filled with broth, will burst easily.
