at Baozi Pu
-Seongsu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
Baozi Pu is a Chinese restaurant. Specializes in dumplings and noodles. Currently 2 locations in Seoul.
The food was excellent. Referred to as “baozi” on the menu, the xiaolongbao had soft, chewy skins, and tasty pork filling; the broth inside the dumpling was a bit flat but passable. The “hundun” noodle soup, comprising flour noodles with small dumplings topped with minced pork in a spicy pork broth, somewhere between jjambbong and tonkotsu ramen, was rich and utterly satisfying. Most important, the experience felt completely Chinese – i.e., not Korean-Chinese.
