Xiao Long Bao

I  was working last week in Shanghai (MFG.com) and had the chance to experience something unique and delicious.  Xiao Long Bao (dumplings) right on the street.  If you find yourself in Shanghai or elsewere perhaps in China you need to try this.  For only something like $2 you can get served 5 large Xiao Long Bao from the front window of the stall.  Xiao Long Bao are like large round ravioli balls with pork inside and a small amount of scalding hot broth.  We ordered on the street and took them upstairs to the communal tables at this particular place and threw them back with a nice bottle of Tsing Tao.  Here’s a shot form the place we ate.
