Often regarded as one of the best Shanghainese restaurants in town, Liu Yuan’s cooking style stays loyal to tradition with a no-fuss mentality that has worked in their favor for years. Easy favorites include sweet strips of crunchy eel, pan-fried meat buns, and steamed xiao long bao dumplings plumped up with minced pork and broth. Diners also wax lyrical about the house special crispy rice soup and rice crackers smothered in salted egg yolk. Come hungry, since you'll need plenty of room to stomach all of these deliciously carby dishes.
