Where to Get Authentic Soup Dumplings Around the Main Line

When you crave savory soup dumplings, look no further than these authentic Asian eateries around the Philadelphia suburbs.

Xiaolongbao, known in America as soup dumplings, are a favorite at Chinese and Asian restaurants around the Main Line. With the impending closure of Wayne favorite Margaret Kuo’s coming up March 19, it might be time to find a new restaurant serving this mouthwatering delicacy.

Differing from pan-fried dumplings, these steamed dumplings are doughier, fluffier and filled with broth and a meaty filling. Be sure to get your soup spoons ready before puncturing your xiaolongbao. Satiate your craving at one of these local dumpling destinations and enjoy every bite.
