Nan Xiang — an NYC favorite for mouthwatering xiao long bao (soup dumplings) — just opened a location in Manhattan for the first time ever!
Known for their “Lucky Six Soup Dumplings” in pretty pastels — which comes in the flavors of pork, crab meat & pork, chicken, scallop & pork, black truffle & pork, and gourd luffa with shrimp & pork — Nan Xiang is a beloved Flushing staple that now has an additional home in Midtown’s Koreatown, a block from the Empire State Building.
The new outpost opened to the public on Thursday, July 28 for a soft opening from 11 a.m.- 11 p.m., taking walk-ins only. Stay tuned for the announcement of hours to come!
The space appears to be minimal and spacious with natural wood tones and landscape images, according to photos teased on their social accounts.
A rep told us that the menu contains their signature dishes, like their soup dumplings (of course) — you can get separate orders of all flavors listed above, in addition to other selections like sea cucumber and pork, ham and pork, and abalone and pork — plus wontons in peanut sauce, stuffed scallion pancakes, spicy beef & tripe, pan-fried pork buns, and more, mimicking the Flushing menu.
Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao—named after the Nan Xiang County of Shanghai, China where “soup dumplings” (or xiao long bao) originated—first opened in Flushing, Queens in 2006.
You can find the new location of Nan Xiang at 24 W 33 St. Follow them on Facebook & Instagram to stay up-to-date on hours and opening week happenings.
