People tend to check in during these times:
Get the soup dumplings
Dry fry chicken wings are loaded with a thick garlic pepper sauce and still stay crunchy. Must order.
Come here if you discover Shanghai dumpling king is closed until March 23
Xiao Long Bao and Kung Pao are the best I've had in SF. Everything tastes like it came straight from Shanghai. For a person who used to live in Shanghai for 7 years, this is my favorite place.
Best hidden tea pot dumpling in town if you're lucky enough to find one in there!
Check your teapot, sometimes they sneak an extra dumpling in there
XLB ftw. Cash only.
Try the dry fried prawns (sweet/spicy heaven) and the stringbeans- soooo delish.
Probably the best xiao long bao in sf (at least better than Shanghai Dumpling King)
For 2 people, order: Soup dumplings, side of spicy string/green beans, and hand cut noodles w shrimp. Also think its byob.
Spicy won tons with garlic are on the "secret menu"
As mentioned, the dry fried chicken wings are spectacular as is the delicious spicy eggplant with shrimp and chicken (pictured).
the salt and pepper pork knuckle is friggin incredible. super crispy on the outside and plenty of meat for 5 ppl. served with fried chopped basil squee
Dried fried chicken is HELLA good. I think it's better than San Tung's. (my opinion)
You definitely have to get pickled vegetables with soy bean and shredded pork soup with hand cut noodles. So good and worth it.
XLB here is better than shanghai dumpling king.
Salty soy milk for weekend brunch is divine
Yummy potstickers and noodles
Excellent xiaolongbao. Takeout available. Cash only.
