Beyond Soup Dumplings: Shanghai Cafe Deluxe's Tasty Dumplings in Soup

New York Andrew Coe 2 comments

We're soup dumpling-mad. When we go to a Shanghai-style Chinese restaurant, all too often we order soup dumplings, perhaps before we even sit down. But sometimes it pays to slow down and pay attention to the rest of the dumpling menu. On a recent visit to the excellent Shanghai Café Deluxe, our eyes lit on something called rice ball with pork in soup ($3.95). What a novel idea—dumplings in soup, rather than dumplings with soup inside them. More

Photo of the Day: Soup Dumpling In Spoon

Robyn Lee 7 comments

I love the way that Danny's pudgy soup dumpling from Joe's Shanghai in New York City looks like it's trying to escape its spoon. I'm sure it was devoured not long after this photo was taken. In the battle between dumplings and humans, humans always win. Related Photo of the Day: Croissant Innards Photo of the Day: Giant Soup Dumpling Make Your Own Soup Dumplings... More

Make Your Own Soup Dumplings

Whenever I take someone out to dinner for soup dumplings who's never had them before, they can never understand why I'm so excited: "Uh, it's just dumplings in soup. Big deal?" But it is a big deal! They are wrong! The dumplings are not in the soup, the soup is in the dumplings! They've got lovely pork fillings inside them, sometimes crab too, but the star attraction is the hot, savoury broth that you suck out through a hole you've delicately nibbled.
