Shanghainese Chinatown

I Just spent the summer in Shanghai and would like to take my family out for some real Shanghainese food. Is anyone able to reccomend some good Shanghainese restaurants in Chinatown? It would be for lunch, and if they have Shanghainese dim sum that would be preferable. Thank You!!!

  1. Personally, I'm a fan of Shanghai Cuisine on Mullbury and Baxter for Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) and Rice Cakes (Nian Gao), as well as Shanghai Pea Greens. Some prefer Joe's Shanghai, the most publicized soup dumping joint, or Shanghai Cafe. I've also had good meals at New Yeah Shanghai Deluxe and New Green Bo in the past, but I've recently heard that New Green Bo has gone downhill. If you're uptown and looking for an authentic, albeit upscale Shanghainese meal, try Shanghai Pavillion.
