Desperate to find these morsels!

Mitzimouse | Nov 24, 2008 01:55 PM

OK, Chowhounders: here is the mission.

Shengjian man tou

See link:

Hubby had these fab pork and soup dumplings in Shanghai when he was a single travelling nomad. He has been obessed with this little mouthfuls of delight for the past 20 yrs (yes, I know, he needs to move on...).

These are not the steamed variety. He describes them as small little round balls with a fried exterior that crunch open to release the rivulet of broth and lump of sweet delicate pork meet. We have called/searched in person for these things everywhere. They do not exist in Toronto....or do they Dear Co-Food Seekers o' Knowledge?

I am trying to save myself a few thousand dollars before he drags me overseas for these things. Help?
