The best soup dumpling (long)

Tzuo | Apr 22, 2003 03:43 AM

Yesterday, me and 2 other friends ate lunch at this new restaurant called New Joe Shanghai. Of course we asked for the famous Shanghai specialty "xao long bao" which is reffered to on the menu as "pork steam buns or crab/pork steamed buns. We wanted to see if they came close to the ones in Shanghai, but they were even better than that. They were just perfect! The wrapper was not too thick and the broth had just the right flavor. Me and one other guy there that night,(both of us work in Shanghai), thought that these soup dumplings could even be a bit taster than the ones over there. Does snyone know where they have a better dumpling than that? Soup dumpling is definitely the emperor of all dumplings.
