148 Lawrence Street Brooklyn, NY 11201
This is a long overdue post, but just an FYI: a Shanghainese restaurant has landed in Downtown Brooklyn! I first heard of Yaso Tangbao from the New York City Dumpling Festival back in September 2015 and when I heard they were opening up just 1/2 block from where I used to work, I was excited!
Yaso Tangbao isn't like your typical Shanghainese restaurants, but rather it is a counter-serve, fast-casual restaurant. I came on a Friday afternoon with Will and boy was it crowded! There's a few communal tables and benches for you to sit on and eat as well as smaller tables that are ideal for one person or two people and counters with seats. The service is pretty quick and the staff here are very friendly!

The xiao long bao was phenomenal, but still too expensive for me. The owner reached out to me on Yelp and informed me that there have been price and menu adjustments, so I may be inclined to return to Yaso Tangbao to give it another shot.
