    1. I actually have never been to Joe’s Shanghai! I’ve been told it can get a bit crowded/touristy there, so I usually go to this other place close by on Mott Street, called Shanghai Cafe. The soup dumplings are just as good (if not better) and it’s less of a tourist trap!


      1. Oooh! I will have to try that when I get back to the city! Joe’s Shanghai has a midtown location that is far less crowded, and less touristy, albeit not in China Town. If you want to try it, I recommend that location.
