Watch as cooks hand-make pork, crab and vegetable dumplings served piping hot from the frypan or inside a steaming basket. More daring dim sum options include cold-fish plates like jellyfish with turnips, while substantial dishes include stir-fried udon noodles tossed in Shanghai-style sauce and rice cakes loaded with shredded stewed pork.

I absolutely love the Xiao Long Bao here, purely because its tasteful, full of soup and the chefs that make it here make it with heart.
I also appreciate that Nan Xiang has more than just xiao long bao. Their cold appetizers are the bomb, especially the vegetarian chicken and tripes as well has their scallion pancakes and pancke with beef.
Soup dumpling, noun:
A pocketful of savory, delicious meat (usually of the pork variety) enclosed in a palm-sized ball of dough that's baked/steamed to perfection. Due to the extremely hot broth within, the traditional way of eating it is to place the dumpling onto your soup spoon, take a bite from the top and sip the soup inside slowly.
