Jae and I recently stopped by Flushing, New York to find the soup dumpling restaurant he’s been raving about since I met him: Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao. We drove for over 4 hours to try it out and it definitely did not disappoint.
The soup dumplings are thinly wrapped, juicy, flavorful, and filling. Jae and I basically ROLLED out of that restaurant with food coma after our meal. My only wish is that we lived right next door so we could eat here whenever we have cravings.
But then again, maybe it’s good we live far away since I’d probably crave their soup dumplings everyday. Overall, I can’t speak much for their other dishes but Jae and I would 10/10 recommend this place for soup dumpling fans.
Jae also really likes their spicy beef tripe. He says he dreams about it sometimes.
