Wu Kong is a very popular Shanghai restaurant in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. It’s been in business since 1984 and business has been really strong since they had a total renovation a few years ago. At lunch they offer their version of dim sum and light meals. It’s easier to get a table during lunch. It’s virtually impossible to eat dinner there unless you have a reservation or go at 6:00 pm.
Most places in Manila that serve gyoza or fried dumplings usually fry the whole dumpling. This is the right way to do it. Just the bottom should be fried to a crisp while the top dough remains soft. This is one of the best fried dumplings I’ve ever eaten.
fried Shanghai noodle w/ shredded pork & cabbage HK$68
Their xia long bao or soupy dumplings are excellent and I think better than the ones from Din Tai Fung which supposedly serves the best.
