Jia Jia Tang Bao
Shanghai’s xiao long bao soup dumpling scene is a fiercely competitive one. Nevermind an attractive ambience and stylish décor, to reign supreme hinges all on the dumpling itself. At least, that’s the message we get at the city’s most famous xiao long bao spot, Jia Jia Tang Bao, where flavor exponentially outshines finesse. Because this place is so slammed, you must go early to snag the ever-popular crab and pork dumplings, which brim with roe and sweet meat.
