I saw Anthony Bourdain eat XLB or soup dumplings many years ago on No Reservations. They seemed like the perfect food to me so when I visited San Francisco a couple of years ago I had to try them. We went to Shanghai Dumpling King in the Richmond district and were so wowed we went back the next day too.
I think about those tender little soup dumplings often. I haven't found XLB in New Orleans however I don't venture onto the West Bank much so maybe I'm missing something.
Have any of you heard of a place or had XLB in the extended New Orleans area?
