Xiao Long Bao in Tokyo -- Nan Xiang Debate

SHDW | Oct 29, 2003 07:40 PM

I remember a while back there was a debate about a chain of Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao restaurants in Tokyo and their authenticity. While I don't know how good the xiao long bao are I went to the old city here in Shanghai for breakfast this last weekend and the flagship Nan Xiang outlet had a number of larger signs highlighting their Tokyo outlets -- so at least some of them are legitimately associated.

Also, Nan Xiang does sell mass produce xiao long bao which are available in the freezer section of many Shanghai stores so may be exported as well.
