Xiaolongbao and tangbao make for a great quick meal at lunchtime and they’re also dirt cheap if you’re looking to save the pennies. 

For some of the best tangbao, check out Jia Jia Tang Bao, but be prepared for insane queues. A standard basket of a dozen pork dumplings costs only 13RMB, though if you aren’t on a budget, try their legendary crab meat and roe ones that sell for 99RMB for a dozen.
