Eat: Asian Legend (Chinatown location)

With multiple locations in Ontario, Asian Legend is one of the few places I go to in the city to satisfy soup dumpling (xiaolongbao) craving. It’s not the best, but it’ll do.


Jeff was craving for braised beef noodle soup. It’s specified as spicy, it is not at all spicy.

Luffa is a species of cucumber and is developed into loofah sponge (yes, the one you use in baths/showers and kitchen) at its full maturity. While the skin of the dumpling is unique, the dumpling itself is skippable. Dried scallop is quite distinct in flavour, and it was lacking in this. I don’t even think there was any dried scallop in this. The crab meat and pork is so much better.
