Tofu Dumplings At Xiao Long Bao Kitchen in South San Francisco

Xiao Long Bao Kitchen in South San Francisco seems to be best known for their extra large XLB. However I'm not a particularly big fan of XLB, particularly given the potential arterial consequences. However, I would like to highlight the vegetarian dumplings there, made largely of minced tofu. Actually when I saw the menu listing I was expecting an edible version of the horrid mustard green dumpling from Imperial Tea Court in the Ferry Building, so given the relative scarcity of tofu dumplings, this was a pleasant surprise. This is the pressed savory form of tofu you see in the Chinese grocery stores and Taiwanese and other non-Cantonese Chinese restaurants. Wondering now if these are available at the sister Shanghai Dumpling Shop and Shanghai Dumpling King (if the latter is still related.)
