MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Diners at this venerable Flushing institution are greeted with menus and a dish of black vinegar dipping sauce, as it’s practically a given that you’ll be ordering their famous xiao long bao here. Despite stiff competition, these soup dumplings—soft and delicate with spiraled shoulders and a mouthful of lip-smacking golden broth wrapped inside—still stand a head above most. In fact, these chefs have made it their mission to ensure biting into them is a sensual experience. But there are other pleasures to be had here, too, such as the nourishing steamed cabbage in light broth scattered with dried shrimp, or the popular Shanghainese lion's head meatballs. Made from ground pork, the latter are incredibly light and lacquered with a dark, savory glaze.
