Shanghainese Dumplings

We’ll start off with a delicious order of Shanghainese soup dumplings (Xiao Long Bao). These delicious dumplings filled with piping hot soup made of crab, beef or both will leave your taste buds begging for more. We’ll then have some doughier pan-fried bun dumplings called sheng jian bao. While these remain much less well-known here in the States, if you love XLB, you need to try their fried cousins.

Sichuanese Malatang

After padding our stomachs with these Shanghainese delicacies, we’ll want to get some spicy Sichuan fair. Malatang, a deliciously fiery soup made from a combination of different ingredients ranging from quail eggs to lotus roots will blow your culinary mind away

Milk Tea and Chinese Deserts

Nothing like closing out the delicious day with a huge selection of different sesame and fruit based deserts. We’ll also visit one of the original, and in my opinion the best, milk tea shop in Flushing.
