It's been well established on these boards that they've got great dumplings and xlb. I've had the frozen dumplings, frozen xlb (a tad sweeter than what I'm accustomed to, but at least no gamy flavor to the meat). The wontons are also good. I've also tried both the ready-made vegetarian and meat-filled baozi sold in bags on the counter, and the scallion and daikon pastries were excellent.

The only miss for me was the zong zi. A bit overzealous with the soy sauce made it darker than what I'm accustomed to, and the flavors did not stand out when compared to the best out there. And at $2.50 per, a bit pricey.

I'm thinking of sitting in to try their noodles or rice dishes next time. Any recs? How's their beef noodle soup?
