After a long day of playing tourist, we went back to the hotel before heading out to dinner. We used Über car service to take us to the restaurant, Joe’s Shanghai, who is known for the “best” soup dumplings in NYC.
The original location is in Flushing, and another in Chinatown. This location is in midtown at:
24 W 56th St – Midtown West
New York, NY 10019
The soup dumplings are also known as Xiaolongbao, or XLB. These dumplings are filled with pork, steamed, creating a soup inside. The ones at Joe’s was good, but the ones at Din Tai Fung (located in SoCal and Washington) are better, as the wrappers aren’t as thick and still are soupy.
Here’s our menu:
|Shanghai rice cake with chicken|
|And for dessert: almond flavored jello with fruit cocktail|
