Soup Dumplings in Vancouver

I have been inundated with info about soup dumplings lately. They were just on Kylie Kwong, just in the latest Bon Appetit. There are boards here about them. And alas, I have NEVER had one. I have and love Wonton Soup. But soup IN the Dumplings I have yet to experience. Any suggestions Rec's for these taste sensations in Vancouver (BC that is)??
Shanghainese restaurants and most small-eats Taiwanese bistros would often have xiao long bao.
The soup dumplings at Shanghai River (Westminster Hwy) are good. You can also see them make the dumplings on the spot, as they have a window to the part of the kitchen that makes all of the dumplings.
Thanks! Familiar with Kirin (used to have some wine on their list - I'm a wine rep). Have a friend out in New West, will call her and get a field trip going :)
Not sure if it's the reply is late but try Green Village at Broadway and Nanaimo. Their dumplings are really fresh and juicy. Their other dim sum are really tasty too and cheap! Another option is to go to Crystal Mall in Burnaby, near Metrotown. There's a couple of places that make the pork dumplings and the dough is thin and the dumpling is really juicy inside. The wait may be a bit long (15 minutes or so) but it's because they make it fresh.
