Where can I find soup pork dumplings(xiao lung bao) in Monmouth/Ocean County?

I enjoy the soup pork dumplings in Shanghai Bun(in Matawan) and Baido(Middletown) but the later one seemed to be closed, can anyone tell me where else I can go to have those delicious dumplings? Thank you in advance!

    For starters:

    Grand Shanghai, Route 1 Edison
    Shanghai Park, Highland Park
    Shanghai Park, Princeton

      Taste test,

      Good suggestions!(though they are not in Monmouth or Ocean county) I was actually able to sample Grand Shanghai. Got a client in Edison and we were meeting up for lunch today, so I just picked Grand Shanghai. The soup dumplings were really good, we tried the scallion pancake and have some noodles too. The place was quite crowded for lunch and plenty of parking! Thanks for the recommendation and I will have to try Shanghai Park some other time!

        Helen - There are no others that I am aware of in Monmouth or Ocean.

          Thanks! Wish there were...but for the time being, I will just have to satisfy my craving for these soup pork dumplings by visiting Shanghai Bun, if I do not want to drive too much!
