Jingjiang steamed dumplings (靖江蟹黄汤包) are juicy buns filled with crab meat and gravy. This delicious offering is among one of China’s six most famous snacks, dating back over 200 years.

The bun is known for its extremely thin dough and juicy filling. Though it adds to its taste, there is also an element of danger as well if handled too roughly. Be careful not to burn yourself or make a mess while eating it. To eat it properly, you should do what local wisdom advises: “pick it up tenderly; move fast; a small bite at first; then drink the soup.” Editor:吴心海
