Tried the pork soup dumplings and crab& pork. Next time I'll just eat like 100 pork. Also tried the pan fried noodles but everyone was getting the pan fried udon. I'll try that next time. There will be a next time. Just go!

I was somewhat impressed with Shanghai Dumpling House. For the suburbs of NJ, the food here is pretty decent. The soup dumplings are the better option, while the pan-fried version isn't as good. The scallion pancakes are legit, and so are the beef-filled version. I'm...More
