Price Scale

The Eastside chainlet known for soup dumplings, crispy-bottomed Q bao, and dan dan noodles took its time crossing Lake Washington, but Seattle could not be more excited about its pair of locations in the 206. A minimalist, light-filled space in the Publix Hotel and a prominent spot at Ninth and Pine both dispense xiao long bao filled with pork, crab, or chicken to your table seemingly seconds after you order. The wait can be bananas, but the reservation-via-text setup lets you wander the neighborhood until a table’s ready.
