Had dinner at Wing's Shanghai today. Steamed mini pork buns (I can't remember the Chinese name) and something called minced pork on sesame cakes. The steamed buns were great: pleasantly chewey, but not overwhelmingly doughy wrapper with a filling of ginger-scented minced pork. Served with a soy-vinegar-ginger sauce. Didn't have as much liquid inside as other ones that I've had (I'm no expert, though), but quite tasty.
As for the minced pork with sesame cakes, this was sometihng that I've never had before. Slightly spicy and quite salty minced pork with some aromatics (I think), marinated in a soy-based sauce, eaten over a 1/2 inch thick slightly flaky cross between bread and a pancake with sesame seeds. The pork was good, especially, but I prefered it over rice instead of over the cakes, but as this was the first time encountering the cakes, they were interesting at least.
I'm interested in trying some other things on the menu, so any other suggestions from other hounds?
PS Wing's is in Chinatown just off Kneeland Street on Hudson (I believe) near the Chinatown gate. It's a small place downstairs.
