China Southern’s Pork Dumpling Flight Review


China Southern Flight Review is part of the ANA, Take Me ‘Round the World Trip Report.

Does anyone care that I didn’t write a Flight Review for KTM to CAN on China Southern in economy? I really doubt it.

I did take this picture though.

While I wrote a review about the Priority Pass Lounge in Guangzhou, I passed on writing about the preceding flight. I will write a quick review of my experience from CAN back to PVG because the snack was an oversized pork dumpling ( that came in a plastic bag. I’ve had dim sum on Cathay but never a dumpling.

How did it stack up to Yang’s or Yu Garden? I will say that it stacked up quite well. Like a street dumpling, it was soft on the outside and juicy on the inside. Giant dumplings on an airplane – who would of thought? What’s next, lobster thermidor on a plane (see Singapore Airlines A380 Suite Class, My Turn)?

It’s technically a bao, not a dumpling but I say they are related.


  1. Exactly what I was going to say… dumplings are small, meat/vegetable filling wrapped in a thin dough skin. This is a bao, or bun, that is basically dough stuffed with meat or vegetable. Also, for Yang’s, they are best for pan fried dumplings… my preferred version. Technically, there’s also xiao long bao, or soup dumpling, which is probably the second best. Regular dumplings (prepared by boiling in water) don’t really compare to the other 2 dumpling styles.
