Shikumen in Shepherd’s Bush is serving up rainbow coloured soup dumplings

Shikumen Coloured

We've had rainbow cakes, bagels and, more recently, rainbow cheese toaties. Now make way for the newest take on the multi-hued trend, rainbow Xiao Long Bao. These rather beautiful (and SO instagrammable) looking soup dumplings are now on the menu at Shikumen in Shepherd’s Bush.

They are as follows:

  • Yellow (coloured with carrot) - Chicken and Cheese (£6.20)
  • Green (coloured with spinach) - Crab (£7.80)
  • Pink (coloured with beetroot) - Szechuan Spicy Pork (£6.20)
  • Black (coloured with bamboo charcoal)- Lobster and Truffle (£8.80)

If you want to try all the colours of the rainbow - you can order a 5-piece selection of each colour (including the original Xiao Long Bao with Minced Pork) for £12.80.

Shikumen Shepherd's Bush is at the Dorsett Hotel, 58 Shepherd’s Bush Green, London W12 8QE. Keep up with their news on Twitter @ShikumenUK
