Crab soup dumplings (Xiao long bao) in Bay Area?

eellover | Jan 20, 2007 04:11 AM

Hi, has anyone eaten the crab soup dumpling (xiao long bao) at Joe's Shanghai in NY's Chinatown? As far as I'm concerned, those are the best, even better than the ones I tasted in Shanghai and I know a lot of finicky Shanghai old-timers who think the same. Sadly, it was even better a few years ago, before they changed their crab. (The rest of their food is terrible, don't bother.)

Is there anything in SF or the Bay Area that comes close? I was not impressed by HC Dumplings in Cupertino village (though many have posted positively about them). Thanks.
