Taipei Gourmet Lexington

Finding a place that's open for lunch on Chrismas Day can be hard but luckily there is always Taipei Gourmet in Lexington.

I decided to make this an appetizer day and started with the Salt & Pepper Fried Chicken ($7.29) that was, as usual, excellent with really tender dark meat chicken. Note to self, don't try to eat the sliced chili peppers!

Next was the Steamed Mini Juicy Buns ($6.99) with the vinegar/ginger sauce. Excellent and very tender with tasty pork inside. The original name is Xiao Long Bao or just XLB. There is a trick to eating these without burning up your mouth.
