The showpiece at this dim sum specialist is a colorful platter of eight different xiao long bao (shoronpo), representing exotic flavors like foie gras, truffles, cheese and Szechuan pepper. You can also choose from a menu of typical Chinese delicacies, or a simple bowl of noodles if that's all you want. Don't be put off by the rather plain noodle-shop decor on the ground floor - the basement dining area is quite a bit fancier.
