Tien Liyuan (Tien Ma) was born in 1932 in Fang-shan township, P’ing-tung county, Taiwan. She spent her childhood in coastal southern Taiwan helping her mother cook and prepare meals for her younger siblings for their lunch boxes to school. She moved to Zhongshan District in Taipei as a young adult and perfected her Xiao Long Bao recipe while working in the kitchen at a local high school. She then opened her own stalls selling her legendary Xiao Long Bao in the night markets of Taipei. She has then retired and has passed on her secret recipe to bring the best and most authentic Xiao Long Bao to us in Manila.
