Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, $, 38-12 Prince St Flushing, NY 11354
I’ve just found out one of my favorite Flushing eateries has closed.
Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao was always my first stop when I went to Flushing. They had incredible soup dumplings and food in general.
I took my sister and her boyfriend there when they visited me in New York.
It’s the first place I had a soup dumpling. I didn’t know how to eat them and my partner burned a line down his chin trying. It’s also when I realized black vinegar is glorious.
I came straight off the 7 train and looked for those red awnings. I always came hungry.
We took all our friends there, despite the long and stressful wait for a table. Despite the fact it was cash only.
I will mourn you Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao.
