Shanghai Yaki-Shoronpo


Restaurants & Cafés


This shop is located in the retro ambience of Harmonica Yokocho area, which stretches out from the North Exit of Kichijoji Station. It opened in Mar 2010 on a corner of the cluster of tiny shops and alleys, squeezed between an eel restaurant and a fruit shop. They only serve pan-fried soup dumplings, which pack a satisfying amount of meat filling into their bready skin. There is no seating, and when the queues outside are particularly long, they can account for the entire batch being cooked, so be prepared for a wait.
