my boyfriend and I went to the most-talked-about Joe's Shanghai to see that all the fuss is about, and to have us some of them Soup dumplings. If there's anyone I know who lives in the area and hasn't tried it, I would highly recommend it. I've had xiao long pao in a different restaurant slightly off chinatown, but boy.... Joe's Soup Dumplings were of different Species.
One advice... no Two----1, Don't put them into your mouth at once when it's brought to you. yes, it does have SOUP in the skin, very very hot soup at that, and it WILL burn your mouth. 2. its kind of filling. we had 8 soup dumpling (4 for each persons) and just had one beef dish to follow it with some rice. that was plenty for dinner, I think.
