XLB virgin

I have heard a lot about xiao long bao on this board, but I've never tried them. I went to Shanghai restaurant in Oakland, but I couldn't find XLB or "soup dumpling" on the menu, nor did the waitress seem to have any clue what I was talking about when I asked for soup dumplings. What should I have ordered? What did I do wrong? Will I ever get to eat xiao long bao?
