Steamed soup dumplings with a pork filling atop a napa cabbage leaf. $5.50
Shanghai Dumpling King, San Francisco
These dumplings were SO delicious! I only ripped one or two while trying to eat them with chopsticks so I was particularly proud of myself. When I first had these, I wondered how they got the soup inside the dumplings. Apparently, the dumplings are made with a pork filling and a gelatin aspic. The aspic melts into a “soup” when the dumplings are steamed – genius! These are very fun to eat and Shanghai Dumpling King’s are some of the best in San Francisco.

November 17, 2013. So I guess they’re not using the napa cabbage on the bottom anymore. That’s a shame.
