佳家汤包 Jia Jia Tangbao – Shanghai

The very famous Xiao Long Bao in Shanghai is Jia Jia.  The shop is small, but they churn out the Xiao Long Bao fast.  This place is always packed!

Decide what you want quickly, because as soon as you get in, you need to order! The menu changes depending upon what they are making.  Today they have Egg Yolk, Hairy Crab and Regular combination. They make and roll the Xiao Long Bao right there, you can watch them do it Time to eat!  This is a combo of the three different styles for the day – Pork, Pork with Egg Yolk and Crab.  Honestly, they were all sort of the same.  It should be distinguishable, but it really wasn’t for me.It’s one of those try it once places so you can say you have.
