The soup dumplings are some of the best I've had - prepare to wait a bit though on a busy night.

This is the best spot on St. Marks among a bunch of gems (I'm also partial to Xi'an famous foods)

This is one of the best one's I've had in NYC recently.

Nicely thin wrap with a good bite to them and a balanced filling.

Good bite meaning that they're spicy?

Outside of Shanghai, this has to be some of the best Chinese food I've ever had. Their soup dumplings (specifically the crab & pork) are my go-to meal whenever I visit, especially because they're fresh-to-order. The meat inside is always nice and tender, and the skin is thin but pleasurably chewy. The prices are insanely low, and the restaurant, while crowded occasionally, is quite large and can accommodate both large and small parties. Eat your dumplings slowly as to enjoy them (or inhale them and order more).

Skip Joe's Shanghai and go directly to Shanghai Asian Manor. Their dumplings are the best I've had in the city. The skins are thick, but not overly doughy, and the flavor of the broth is sweeter than normal and all that more exciting. I especially enjoy their crab soup dumplings. Shanghai Asian Manor is a popular spot, with long lines at peak hours, but go for an early lunch and you're sure to make it in to try these yummy dumplings.
