STAND OUT SOUP DUMPLINGS

Where to Get That Xiao Long Bao

Winter is here. With it, of course, comes the need to fill our bodies with molten goodness, preferably in the form of Xiao Long Bao or soup dumplings. While Shanghai style food is not uncommon in Queens, only a select number of Shanghainese restaurants and vendors serve Xiao Long Bao. Those that do it well can be found in Downtown Flushing, Greater Flushing (Queensboro Hill), and Little Neck. Here's where we like to go:

Soup dumplings next to try for our list include: Yu Garden, new stall at the New World Mall

**Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao and Joe's Shanghai have been omitted due to consistency issues
