XLB and SJB at Shanghai Dumpling in Cupertino

mr_darcy | Nov 9, 201312:07 AM     25

This place opened a year ago, but I couldn't find any mention of it here on CH.

If you're into XLB or SJB, I would urge you to try them at Shanghai Dumpling in Cupertino (at the intersection of Bollinger and Blaney, where the new location of QQ Noodle is).

Both are perhaps the best in the SF Bay Area, to my personal taste at least. The skin is just right and both are oh so juicy.

If you go, you might notice that 50-75% of the tables have a giant wood-trimmed metal bowl with a ton of rice in them. Those come with delicious fried pork ribs, which have all been eaten already (and the rice has bacon mixed into it). Also highly recommended!
