See Website

To sample some of Shanghai’s best traditional cuisine, seek out this local haunt set by the entrance to the Yu Garden. The original location of a popular Chinese chain, this spot in Shanghai’s Old Town is famous for xiao long bao, steamed buns that are similar to dumplings. Simple in design and décor, Nanxiang is a Shanghai icon because of its cuisine, and the revered hairy crab dumplings are not to be missed.

Indagare Tip: Plan to come early; the popular eatery is packed with locals by 10:30am, so its best to plan an early breakfast before meandering through the gardens. Head to the third floor for seated dining.
