With pork, shrimp and black ginger vinegar. $11.50
Betelnut Restaurant, San Francisco
This was described by our waittress as a soup dumpling (xiao long bao), but they weren’t very soupy. I guess it’s trying to be an upscale version, but it just didn’t work. The filling was super heavy, the wrapper was too thick, and there wasn’t enough soup inside! I’ll pass on this next time.
Black ginger vinegar (and another random dipping sauce).
