101 South: Millbrae, Shanghai Dumpling Shop

updated June 10, 2016

Shanghai Dumpling Shop  455 Broadway, 1 blk. W of El Camino Real, (650) 697-0682.  L-D daily; $.  No reservations.  Some people who visit this small cafe manage to snag one of the booths, which are particularly comfortable after the usual wait to get in.  The specialty dumplings are made fresh in the small kitchen and include Xiao Long Bao (juicy two-bite Shanghai steamed-pork dumplings) and Beijing-style boiled chives dumplings.  (Having just returned from my first tour of China I can attest that these dumplings are superior to anything I tasted there.)  An assortment of rice and noodle dishes (the stir-fried fat Shanghai noodles with pork are particularly tasty) and typical Chinese dishes round out the extensive menu.

A few doors down, Dean’s Produce (461 Broadway, (650) 692-1042.) displays colorful fruit and vegetables outside and offers plenty more inside along with exotic imported goods.  More shops line the street.
