Shanghai Heiping: NYC's best Xiaolongbao 小笼包 (soup dumplings)

One of the regulars frequented by my friends and I on your average Saturday in Manhattan, Shanghai Heiping has some of the best Xiaolongbao (小笼包) I've ever had.

The design and lighting of this small local eatery also makes for a unique vibe not often found in Manhattan's Chinatown! In addition to the great soup dumplings, the other main courses found at this restaurant are your typical family-style Shanghai fare.

I will be back again. And again. And again.
