The crab-and-pork-filled soup dumpling you’ll find at Dumpling Legends on Union Turnpike in Fresh Meadows isn’t quite bursting with as much broth as some of the other xiao long bao we love in the city. But the soup is rich and the filling doused with the gingery, vinegary soy gives a nice tang to the otherwise meaty dumpling. While you’re there, consider buying one of their jars of chili oil that sit right by the register - we’ve had it on their wontons in spicy sauce and it was floral, not too spicy, and extremely orange in color.
