Fodor's Expert Review 456 Shanghai Cuisine

$$ Chinatown Chinese

Crowds come to this casual Chinatown eatery for above-average Chinese fare, such as General Tso's chicken, pork buns, and cold sesame noodles, but do yourself a favor and order soup dumplings (xiao long bao) as soon as you sit down. You won't regret it: the dumplings, doughy and thin on the outside, encase morsels of crab swimming in a bold, porky broth.
