Dumpling Cafe

I always walk by Dumpling Cafe, and I finally went with Lukas because I was craving xiao long baos like no other. As previously mentioned, the Shanghainese pork dumplings  are one of my favorite things to eat, and I am in search of the best place to get them in Boston. 

Dumpling Cafe's soup dumplings are good (definitely better than Gourmet Dumpling House's). The skin is an acceptable thickness, though a bit on the sticky side, and the pork and soup are deliciously savory and fragrant. We also ordered a stir-fried string beans and beef and Shanghai braised noodles. The string beans hit the spot and so did the flavor of the noodles, but I wish the noodles were a bit thicker and less limp. 

I must say that I intend on returning soon because I love my Shanghainese food and dumplings. 

--edit: their noodles are actually Taiwanese styled noodles. This might explain the texture of the noodles? It still has the same flavors.
