    Anyone ever try Da Jiang Nan Bei across from the Gold City supermarket on Kissena? Haven't been in maybe 1.5yrs, getting too lazy for hiking out there w/o a car.

    They had an excellent crab + egg yolk dish (not sure how Shanghainese it is but hey, why not), kao fu has always been decent, not too sweet, not too bland. They have a bunch of tofu knot dishes as well as meatballs in tofu skin which my mom would make all the time when I was a kid.

      Menu in English? Does staff speak any English as far as you recall? Sounds interesting.

        I will await your verdict, and hope to get there before too long myself!

        I guess the NYT wants to keep this place a secret? Maybe it is!

        Only one mention on Yelp.

        Jiang Nan (江南 - Jiāng Nán) means the Shanghai area – which also includes parts of Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Zhejiang and Anhui province.
