IHT journalist's Shanghai xiaolong bao quest.

Xiao Yang | Nov 14, 2007 06:25 AM

The International Herald Tribune has a nice, perceptive article about xiao long bao and its aficionados, including a nod to "the notoriously fussy eaters at the U.S. website". Its travel writer, Daisann McLane, has obviously paid attention to the discussions on this forum, and though I don't agree that Din Tai Fung's XLB are more worthy than those of Jia Jia Tang Bao (which seems to have lost points for no longer being an out-of-the-way funky dive, I found it to be overall a fair and intelligent review of some of the options. She even called out a place new to me (Fu De, in Hongkou) which I've put on my list for my next trip to Shanghai.

Hey, Daisann, come out of the closet and jump into the XLB debate here!
