If you are fond of soup dumplings, do not hesitate and go to Jia Jia Tang Bao! Since this place is so popular and known for its amazing dumplings you can be sure to stand in line for a while (reservations is not possible)…But no worries, they move very fast and it’s so worth it! The place itself is as you can expect nothing fancy at all (cafeteria style decor), small, crowded and you have to share your table with others. Orders are taken at the counter as you enter. Fortunately there is an English menu and whether you like shrimp, lobster, pork or prawn, they all taste great! Order your dumplings together with some accompanying sauce like vinegar and ginger. And eat as much as you like, prices are so low, so nothing to worry about. Once you have been here, you will definitely keep on dreaming about these little steamy, juicy buns!
Tip: Jia Jia Tang Bao runs out of dumplings in the afternoon so get there early!
