This is one of my number one dumpling ‘go-to’ places. This fits into the same category as Shanghai Night, which has two outlets, one on either side of New Shanghai. (The quote ‘ours is not to reason why’ comes to mind). The only difference is, that New Shanghai’s food I think is a little more consistent, and they also recently renovated which has seemed to draws in more crowds and patrons.

Now to the food! I particularly like the fried juicy pork buns and find it hard not to order it, every time I visit. This is similar to xiao long bao, which has a bit of soup hidden inside the dumpling, along with the succulent pork mince. So try to avoid burning your tongue on the hot soup and steam trapped inside the bun! I also love their pot-sticker dumplings and variety of fried and steamed dumplings.

This time we chose:

  • beef brisket hot pot
  • rice
  • fried juicy pork buns
