    Are you looking for a store to buy soup dumplings, or are you interested in a restaurant with soup dumplings on the menu?

    As for the latter, I recently had and extrordinary chicken consume with duplings at Hawk's. The soup had amazing richness and depth.

        I think hlf is referring to the new place in Roseville. It's not the Chinese soup dumpling, but rather dumplings in a soup.

      If you are referring to the Shanghainese specialty, some of the dim sum places have them. Try New Canton. Also Tapioca Cafe on Freeport. But I don't think they make their own, more like frozen re-steamed. First Choice on 16th used to have Shanghainese dim sum on weekends, I don't know if they still do.

          First Choice, but I don't know if they still serve Shanghai dim sum (not Cantonese dim sum) on weekends. Tapioca Cafe is Taiwanese. New Canton is Cantonese, but they do have soup dumpling for lunch.
