When asked where to get the best Xiao Long Bao (小笼包) AKA soup dumplings, many often say you’ve got to go to Joe’s Shanghai on Pell St. But I sometimes have to disagree. You can get some amazing Xiao Long Bao Soup Dumplings at either of 2 Grand SiChuan restaurants in Manhattan. Both offer the same delicious taste of dumplings without the hassle and annoyance of sharing your table with the tourist bus crowds at Joe’s Shanghai. Besides at Grand SiChuan, you can order some kick ass authentic SiChuan dishes too like Suan Dou Jiao (spicy sour string bean cubes with shredded pork). Enjoy!
