Description

Village Voice's Description

Hereas the place to sample the celebrated soup dumplings of Shanghai (called "steamed buns" on the menu)--hefty pouches of dough filled with crab or pork in a savory brown gravy. Nip off the top and decant the gravy into your spoon, then eat the dumpling between sips of sauce. Or develop your unique personal strategy. For the adventuresome thereas drunken crab, a sort of ceviche of raw Maryland blues marinated in yellow rice wine, with the cerulean of the shell creating a pretty contrast with the electric-orange roe.

    The best place to take tourists & locals alike if you're in the Chinatown neighborhood! Favorite picks: crispy shredded beef; shanghai fried rice; & scallion pancakes You'll be asked if you want the soup dumplings upon seating: always say yes!

    Awesome Chinese food. They have a dish called soup dumplings that has actual soup in with the rest of the dumpling. Very good appetizer. The wait was 45 minutes but lots to see and do at this location. There is a bar around the corner that used to be an Opium den, very creative drinks.
