A lot of other xiaolongbao restaurants in other parts of the world would list nanxiang xiaolongbao on their menu. Hence, when we visited the ChengHuang Temple District in Shanghai, I wouldn't want to give the original NanXiang brand a miss. We first spotted the long...More

Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the
streets that serve as the border to the old city. An
