Maybe the chef is in love, who knows. What we do know is that xiaolongbao at De Xin Guan have gotten sweeter and better as the years go by.
At De Xin Guan, a well known noodle shop, they serve a traditional Shanghai xiaolongbao with a rich meat filling that is almost as well known as De Xin's pork trotter noodles and mini wontons in soup.
The regular pork xiaolongbao alongside a bowl of green onion-topped blood soup make for a cheap, tasty breakfast.
