Bob's Shanghai 66
The beauty of Bob's Shanghai 66 is that it combines Chinese dishes familiar to the American palate with more exotic and traditional options. Chefs prepare sliced pig ears in a savory sauce, smoked duck, and crispy pancakes with scallions. Their most famous dish, however, is the XLB—xiao long bao, or pork soup dumplings—beloved by regulars and anyone opposed to soup spoons. For dessert, the chefs top shaved ice with a drizzle of syrup, fruit, and sweet red beans. Bob's Shanghai 66 has been mentioned in Thrillist as one of the best spots to eat dumplings in D.C.; they were also mentioned in Eater.
