Joe's Shanghai has been cited by several magazines such as Time Out New York and has won 1998 Eating and Drinking Awards. Its main location is in Flushing.The most drawing aspect of Joe's Shanghai is acclaim for their cuisine, in particular, the pork or crab meat xiaolongbao, a type of small Chinese steam bun. At Joe's Shanghai, xiaolongbao is listed on the English menu as simply "steamed buns," in which the soup is actually inside the buns. This is achieved by thickening the soup with gelatin and putting it in as a solid. When the buns are later steamed, the solids melt back into liquid soup within the outer bun casing.
