Must Get: Shanghai pan-fried buns

The Shanghai pan-friend buns (shengjianbao 生煎包) here are some of the best ones I’ve had in a while. They weren’t too doughy, had just the right amount of meat, and they were cooked thoroughly. Their spicy wontons (hongyou chaosou 紅油炒手) were pretty decent. The sauce was good despite the lack of peanut-ty taste I’ve grown accustomed to from the ones I’ve had in Taiwan. They were a bit on the small side though, the amount of meat in each wonton was probably the size of a nickel.

I didn’t try their other dishes, so I don’t know if they’re any good, but based off those two dishes, I would come back and try something else. They offer boba (bubble for you New Yorkers) milk tea (and green milk tea!) for $1 if you order a noodle dish. Their boba green milk tea wasn’t bad. I’d definitely get that again for a buck.
