Shanghai Dumpling King [SF] - Is it going downhill?

Went yesterday.Not bad but not great . Will probably keep going but not as often until they get it right again. Any other suggestions beside South Bay ?

Had a similar bad experience first time back but a much better one second time.i thought there was a chef change as well. As it seems that they are off and on and off again they might be rotating chefs. I hate to give up on them as I can't find better XLB in the city. Hopefully they will get it right.

I was there 2 weekends ago. Not up to snuff. I'm hoping it gets better .It tasted like a chef change. Not as tasty nor soupy. You might see the sfeater.com posting about a telephone conversation with shanghai dumpling king reopening .Its hilarious .Chuck

Hey everyone Shanghai Dumpling King is moving aprox the 3rd week of April or sooner. The new address will be 696 Monterey Blvd. Apparently the present restaurant is going to be renovated. They don't know how long they will be at the new location or if they are coming back to the old one. They will have a post on the door when it happens. Might be nicer place but farther for me. Kind of a shocker !

Sadly enough I' m only there for the XLB and the green beans which are terrific. :)

It's still the best.Every time I try a different place I'm always surpriced about how better they are in flavor. I love Din Tai Fung in Asia for the diversity of the soup dumplings ,like the foie gras soup dumplings or truffle XLB but really the pork XLB at Shanghai Dumpling King is as good or better. Going on Saturday :)

Yup had the xlb yesterday it was really good. Not a fan of the shanghai noodles either ,kinda tasteless and bland. I do recommend the Green Beans as a side dish they are great.I order them with the dumplings every time ! Going to Hong Kong and Beijing next month outa have some fine xlb when I get there :) Nice pic hyperbowler

I've been going to shanghai dumpling king weekly for xlb.Its still the best around and I've tried them all. Sometimes the xlb are better than other times but nothing is perfect. Interestingly I returned from Hong Kong were they have established 2 Din tai fungs and found that the pork filing actually tasted better at dumpling king . I was actually disappointed after eating in thier Shanghai locations .
