Over the last few years, soup dumplings have received a much-deserved showering of attention through Instagram and TikTok fans. To score a truly authentic, broth-laden meal, Shanghai 21 is a destination for both Chinatown locals and its visitors. Orders of Crab and Pork; or Black Truffle and Pork are popular items. Fill up the rest of your table with other dim sum classics like Steamed Watercress and Shrimp Dumplings; Sweet Red Bean Pancakes; Fried Pork Buns; Pan-Fried Wontons; and Cold Sesame Noodles.
What the team says: “After a long day, order yourself some Pork Soup Dumplings with the meat sauce noodle and be prepared to knock it out swiftly. I’ve been recommending this spot for years, the food always reminds me of great conversations, tasty eats, and a full stomach.” -Peter
