One of my best friends is currently visiting Shanghai. I recommended her to check out my favorite dumpling restaurant. Their 蟹粉小龍包/crab meat dumplings are out of this world. The last time I went was a few years ago before the shop was forced to relocate when the street it was on was completely redeveloped. The previous store was best described as a bomb shelter. It was a tiny shop below ground level and had 4 or 5 tables with plastic stools tucked under them.
Thanks for sharing the pictures, Nat!
Crab meat dumplings 22.50 RMB (US$3.44), 1.50RMB (US$0.23) for ginger slices in the vinegar. The skin on these dumplings is really thin which I definitely prefer. Oh how I miss Asia...
90 Huanghe Road, near Fengyang Rd（黃河路90號 , 近鳳陽路）
Phone number: 012-63276878
Open 6:30am to 6:30pm, but once the dumplings are sold out the shop closes for the day.
