Joe's Shanghai, midtown

After an unexpectedly long afternoon of shopping at Bloomingdale's, we decided to treat ourselves to soup dumplings at the midtown outpost of Joe's Shanghai.

The midtown restaurant is nicer than the Chinatown Joe's Shanghai, with tablecloths, a fancy chandelier, and an upgraded teapot, but it's pretty much the same food. Although it's double the price.

If anything, the soup dumplings might have been a little less soupy, but I'm okay with that since this time I didn't burn my mouth on the first one. We also didn't make the mistake of ordering 4 batches of dumplings again. We went with 3 batches plus Shanghai fried rice. It was the perfect quantity.

I thought the steam basket top on the menu was neat.

And the location is really easy to remember. It's on 56th between 5th and 6th.
