Village Voice's Description

The Shanghai soup dumplings ("steamed tiny buns with crab meat and pork") alone would make this narrow café worth visiting. The dumplings are thin, purse-shaped membranes containing gravy and ground pork shot with tidbits of crab, with a bonus wad of crab shooting out the top like a volcano erupting. Other dumplings are nearly as commendable, making this a best bet for all-day dim sum. Second only to the dumplings are the Shanghai cold dishes, which may be ganged up on the plate in pleasing assortments. Our favorites include shredded jellyfish, rice-wine-poached chicken, and mock duck (made with bean curd skin and mushrooms). Noodles are good, too, but avoid anything that costs over $10.

    Decent spot for Shanghainese cooking. The stir fried rice cakes are done well here.

    Get the soup dumplings. You won't regret it. Unless you burn your mouth... But even then, it's worth it.
