From now till June 15, Din Tai Fung in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia will be selling giant, rainbow Xiao Long Baos (XLBs) for AUD$9.80 each, which converts to S$9.33.
The colours of the XLBs are inspired by Vivid Sydney, a three-week event that consists of music, light sculptures, and seminars.
Each bao is apparently hand-made and steamed fresh to order.
Expect fillings of seafood and pork swimming in broth, which you can drink up with a straw served alongside the dish.
Here’s how the rainbow XLB will look among other dishes:

Celebrate Vivid, starting tomorrow night, with our limited edition Giant Rainbow Dumpling 🌈🌈 The single giant dumpling, seven times larger than Din Tai Fung’s regular xiao long bao, is delicious, juicy and seemingly endless – perfect to devour alone or with friends and a sure-fire way to fuel walking the streets of @vividsydney
And here are more true-to-colour photos by customers:
If you’re curious, here’s how they make it:
The chefs combine rolls of coloured dough and flatten it into a round pastry before wrapping the fillings in it.
