Xiao Long Bao revisited

AKA steamed pork buns, Shanghai dumplings or 'soup' dumplings - These were really a hot topic a couple of years ago and I have just gotten around to trying them. Here's the old thread:

The consensus seemed to be that Fu Fu had the best but they were far from ideal. I've found theirs to be too large to get in the mouth comfortably and have found a couple I like better. Anybody know of any others to try? Several places have them, always listed as steamed pork buns rather than dumplings which appears to be a more accurate translation of the name.

Also, anybody know of anyplace that serves the Tang Bao or tang baozi?, the soup dumpling from Jingjiang that is so large you're given a spoon or straw to deal with the broth? The Wikioracle has a picture:
