Go early - queued for about an hour when I reached the place at 5.50pm. Soup dumplings were great - they're better than Nanxiang. Taste is heavier than Nanxiang. Not sure I'll queue an hour again for these, but definitely worth a trip down during...More

This small no-frills spot is the best XLB (xiao long bao) I've had in Shanghai so far. They open up at 6:30 am. Get here early to try the crab roe XLB, as they run out early. This spot is popular with local Shanghainese. There...More
