Yang's Fry DumplingQ: What could be better than soup dumplings? A: An order of fried soup dumplings; duh! Yang's fills its sheng jian bao with the same juicy pork filling as the ubiquitous steamed xiao long bao, but the restaurant uses thicker dough so the dumplings can stand up to super-high temperatures. When they're finished frying, the buns crisp up on the bottom, turning a beautiful shade of golden brown. Enjoy them with chopped cream onions and sesame seeds, but bite carefully: It's too easy to get zapped in the eye with hot broth.
