The soup dumplings at Yaso Tangbao are so attractive we want to invite them to a movie, pay for their tickets, and laugh whenever they laugh at what they’re watching on screen. They’re perfectly symmetrical with immaculate crimps all around, and the dough is thin but still chewy. You can also get your soup dumplings spicy, which is what you should do. That’s mostly why we come to Yaso Tangbao, but you can also get a half duck or a bowl of springy noodles with chicken, tofu, or extremely flavorful braised beef.
