We all know about the xiao long bao, but I have another secret: the scallion pancakes!! Best in the city IMO. Crispy outside, chewy inside, never greasy. Wash down with a Tsingtao, thank me later.
Best soup dumplings in NYC. Worst wait to get dumplings in the world! If you have a party of 4+ just give up and eat at different tables. A 15 minute wait can easily be transformed into a 1 hr+ wait.
Scallion pancakes, soup dumplings, either General Tso's chicken or orange beef, and a round (or 7) of tsingtao. #heaven

you're here because of the soup dumplings - don't overcomplicate the experience with other items. best method: add hot+soy sauces to spoon. place dumpling on top. bite tip, slurp soup. eat dumpling!
Best dumplings in the city. Almost every month i stop by. The only bad thing is the host. She should learn how to be polite immediately.
