So, in quest for the best Xiao Long Bao in Shanghai andv waiting in line for one hour, my quest failed.
The store had run out of plain pork, selling only mix-crab or all crab ones.
I went across the street to a store famous for fryied Dumplings. They were full of soup similar to the xiao long bao.
They were great! RMB5 for 4 Dumplings. I’m sure 4 would be enough for the average shanghaiese, but I ordered 8.
