The originating location of the dependable chain of Chinese restaurants known as Joe's Shanghai, with specialty dumplings, delicious crab pork meat, and more Shanghai selections.
This first Joe's Shanghai was founded in Flushing, New York in 1995 and created a sensation with their two special soup dumplings: crab and pork meat. Each basket is freshly made to order, so don't forget to order your Soup Dumplings upon arrival at your table. Xiao Long Bao or "Little Dumplings in the Basket" originated in Nan Xiang, a suburb of Shanghai. These tender pouches are filled with broth and meat and are freshly made to order, arriving at your table in piping hot bamboo steamers.
Note to the uninitiated! To prevent burning one's mouth and to savor the dumpling, the preferred method of consumption is to bite off a little piece of the doughy wrapper, drip the broth to a spoon or suck the broth with a "slurp", then eat the rest.
Other special dishes includes Spicy Szechuan Style Sliced Beef; Crispy Jumbo Prawns with Lime Sauce; Braised Duck, Braised Pork Shoulders and not to mention our different varieties of cold cuts like Wine Chicken; Shanghai Fried Bean Curd; Braised Sliced Beef.
Over the years, Joe's has been awarded recognition by New York Times Restaurant Guide; Gourmet Magazine; Travel and Leisure; New York Magazine and Zagat Survey. Today, Joe's has three restaurants located in New York - Chinatown, Midtown Manhattan and Flushing, Queens. In Japan, there are three Joe's Shanghai located in Ikebukuro, Funabashi and Ginza.
