Nan Xiang Soup Dumpling returns to Flushing

Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, the famous Shanghainese restaurant considered to have the best soup dumplings in New York City, is re-opening at One Fulton Square, the new heart of Flushing on 39th Avenue.

Previously located in a no-frills space at 38-12 Prince Street between 38th and 39th Avenue, the authentic Shanghainese eatery relocated just 100 feet down the street at One Fulton Square. One Fulton Square is home to a curated selection of restaurants, including many of Flushing’s most popular eateries. Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao joins notable restaurants, including Pappa Rich, the wildly popular Malaysian fast-casual joint, and Guan Fu, a The New York Times three-stars Sichuan restaurant. Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao has committed to a 5,113-square-foot space with a 10-year lease with F&T Group as its new landlord.

“We are so excited to re-open our door to the public and to serve this neighborhood again with a brand-new look,” said Eddie Zheng, General Manager of Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao. “The original team has dedicated to elevating the menu and the service in the past few months, and it’s finally the time for us to share it with our customers. It’s the new era for this legendary restaurant, and we are so proud to carry the legacy.”

A Flushing destination that is said to be the New York City’s top xiao long bao shop, Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, quickly outgrew its original space as foodies caught on to the restaurant’s unrivaled crab and pork soup dumplings, plentiful steamed buns and Shanghainese dim sum. Other popular dishes include fried noodles, fried rice cakes, scallion pancakes, and steamed chicken soup.

Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao will continue to serve those signature favorites along with a selection of exciting new dishes such as “lucky-six” soup dumplings which come with six different natural-colors and flavors, truffle soup dumplings, crispy turnip puffs, Shanghai siu mai, and other seasonal specials. Moreover, Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao has extended the opening hours to 1:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday to accommodate diners into the late night.

Located on a prime corner of 39th Avenue and Prince Street, the new Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao will accommodate 150 guests in a bright, comfortable space with Shanghai “Shikumen-Style” inspired modern interiors. It highlights the charm of the collaboration between eastern and western architectural designs. Curved-roof-tiles decorated walls around the sleek glass open-kitchen where dumplings are hand-wrapped and steamed. Bilingual, hospitality-trained staff will ensure the highest level of service during the unique dining experience.

“The re-opening of Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao means so much to this community,” said Helen Lee, Executive Vice President of F&T Group. ” It is great to see more and more restaurant owners bringing authentic food to New York City and sharing the richness of their culture. We are proud to work with Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao to bring back this local favorite restaurant and to continue the culture and vibe our neighborhood.”
