Yang has come up. He used to live in a shack on West Nanjing Road on the second floor. Like everything in Shanghai, Yang has modernized. It’s sort of a shame because the old restaurant used to have a long line, nowhere to sit, and an illegible menu. Back then a menu was not needed since patrons would just signal with their fingers how many dumplings they required.
The good news about Yang’s Dumpling is that the quality has not gone down. That is a relief since there it has become increasingly difficult to find street restaurants that make sheng jian bao (pan-fried dumplings). Indeed Nanjing Xi Lu used to be full of mom and pop dumpling joints. Now, it’s been overrun by high-rise buildings and Krispy Kremes. That is very sad.
