Best Shanghai Xiao Long Bao?

I met a Shanghainese guy past weekend and we somehow started to talk about Xiao Long Bao aka Soup Dumplings. My all time favorite place for this has always been Joe's Shanghai in Flushing Queens. Every time I crave for Xiao Long Bao, I gotta go to Joe's but my new Shanghainese friend disagrees. He said XLB is good at Joe's BUT XLB at Sam's are better! Whoa! What? NOOO WAYYY... SAM? Who's SAM? SAM is Shanghai Asian Manor! So I must find out for myself and would like for you to join me for a night of Xiao Long Baos and other usual Shanghai favorites like drunken chicken, scallion pancakes, shanghai fried noodles and etc...

    I hate to cancel last minute but I got sick recently so I won't be able to make it tomorrow. I'm disappointed I'll be missing this :(

    Shanghai Asian Manor is not the best. However, this place is very good, and far more convenient for me! :-)

      I do have to note though, many people complain about the service at Shanghai Cafe. Never bothered me though 'cause I'm use to horrible service at Asian establishments lmao

    On my first visit to NYC I was introduced to XLB at Shanghai Cafe. I gotta say I've tried Joe's but my first time is still my favorite. (And the snow pea leaves!!!)

    Either way, I'm looking forward to checking out a new place.
