chinese restaurant paris

Does anyone know of a restaurant that serves Xiǎolóngbāo (the shanghai soup dumplings) in Paris? I have looked everywhere!

  1. Can yo describe the dish? I would be surprised if you can't find it in Chinatown avenue de Choisy/Ivry, especially in the Asia Palace on the esplanade des Olympiades. In any case, they will know what it is and where to get it.

      I too have been searching for good xialongbao in Paris... unsuccessfully so far.
      I wish Din Tai Fung open an outlet in Paris.
      Xialongbao are steam pork dumplings with a very thin skin which contains a rich juicy stock. This is a Shanghai specialty and it is wondefully prepared by the Taiwanese Din Tai Fung (available in many places throughout Asia).

        Get it easily in NY, but have not found here in Paris. The raviolis are shrimp based wanton, good but not Shanghai style, if someone knows, l would welcome as well

    2. Not that many Shanghainese immigrants in Paris, so doubt you'll find any. There are plenty of soup dumpling restaurants in NYC, and a Ding Tai Fung in Los Angeles.
