This small unassuming Taiwanese restaurant is almost hidden, tucked in behind a large Starbucks. This place is definitely worth a visit if only to try the Xiao Long Bao (steamed soup dumplings). Their XLB rivals Ding Tai Fung, with tender, thin skinned pouches filled and...More

We stumbled on this restaurant from trip advisor reviews after our tour at CMU and it did not disappoint. The service was helpful and good. The food was spectacular. We especially enjoyed the squid appetizer, dumplings, and hot and sour soup. Definitely worth checking out...More
