Walk down Mott Street, and you’ll probably see a line of people waiting to get into a little door in between Wo Hop and Hop Kee. That’s when you know you’ve made it to Shanghai 21 (formerly known as Shanghai Asian Manor). This spot should be on the shortlist of places to go if you’re with a group and someone has demanded soup dumplings. Both the crab and pork options have an impressive amount of broth in them, and they’re delicious.
