The xiao long bao truffle

New Shanghai, various locations

At this Chinese restaurant group, truffles are stuffed into inky black xiao long bao and pot-sticker dumplings and stirred through chicken-and-mushroom fried rice. The xiao long bao, or steamed soup dumplings, are thick with the aroma of these black beauties, while the fried rice will impart a sharp, pleasant whiff of the stuff every now and then. If you want to get your truffle fix on a budget, this is a good option – you get a decent amount of it for less than $20 per dish.
