Drunken Dumpling Restaurant Review

: Drunken Dumpling in the East Village, from a mother-son team, serves something called the XL Xiao Long Bao, a gigantic soup dumpling. The signature item is stuffed with crab, scallop and shrimp and is nearly the size of a bowl. They will also offer smaller soup dumplings, pork buns, saké, wine and beer.
