Sometimes the best way to find a restaurant is look for the longest lines, and that’s the case for this street-side restaurant that specializes in shengjian baozi, steamed pork buns. A couple dollars will buy four of these thin-skinned snacks, which are partly fried and partly steamed. Patrons don’t go for the charm; it’s not about the aesthetics at this Jing’an neighborhood location near the Nanjing Road. It is about the dumplings, which are filled with a small amount of pork and hot pork broth.
