    This dumpling shop in Shanghai gets so much business that its small size can’t handle its popularity. However, standing in line is worth the wait. The cheap and delicious pork dumplings are small but probably the best menu item. Buy plenty of them once you reach the top of the line. It’s not an impulse buy if you’ve waited as long as this. These Xiao long bao are smaller than the large dumplings s ... read more >

    You can expect great dumplings of the xiao long bao variety here. It’s a Chinese Tawainese/Fujian restaurant, but the dumplings are just as good here in Shanghai. The place is kind of like an upscale snack bar. Noodle and wonton dishes are available here too. Truly bite sized dumplings are available, meaning that you can pop the whole thing in your mouth and experience a juice explosion. Steamed c ... read more >

    Neighborhood: Jing An

    54-60 Wujiang Rd Nanjing Xi Lu Shanghai Jing An District

    Eating at Dong Bei Ren is an experience and not just because of the dumplings. The Shanghainese cuisine is great here. Candied bananas, cumin enhanced stir fried lamb and sweet and sour fish are three items that you might enjoy from the menu. This is Northern cuisine at its finest. Plus, the staff are enthusiastic and eccentric. In fact, they dance. You’d swear you were in Turkey watching whirling ... read more >

    This is a high class restaurant chain, and their dumplings (of the xiao long bao variety) are small and tasty. The xiao long bao are made with fresh ingredients and the staff are accommodating and it’s a great venue for a romantic meal. That’s as much to do with the classy and elegant décor as anything else. You’ll find authentic Shanghainese cuisine here, often with a contemporary twist.
