Hi guys, I went to a small place on Balboa @ 35th ave. called "Shanghai Dumpling". Everything we had there was excellent, except for the onion pancake.
The various dumplings were AWESOME, moist and tasty, not to mention CHEAP. I was stuffed for less than $20 for the entire meal feeding two people.
Stick with the dumplings.
The clientele was mostly chinese.
I love that neighborhood out there!
