Good Dim Sum restaurant near nanjing dong lu?

Any recommendations for breakfast/lunch while we are exploring Nanjing Dong Lu? We love dim sum in San Diego (where they wheel the carts around) and hope to find something similar.

U may not get the push cart type dimsum in Shanghai but there r some good restaurants selling cantonese dim sum apart from their main menu.The varieties may not b as extensive in typicaly dimsum shops in HongKong.Crystal Jade at 2F,12A,Lane 123,Xinye lu,South Block Xintiandi.

Bifentang with its many branches around Shanghai:http://www.bifentang.com.cn

Understand that dim sum is a Hong Kong specialty not Shanghai. However you will find dim sum as you would in any major city in the world.

my recommendation -- dont go with anyone "practising english, having an art show, have a tea ceremony. know a good bar".....

last but not least - don't buy anything on that street unless you are a local!

basically cantonese dumplings which r very popular in HongKong like the har kao,salty egg prawn dumpling,siew mai,wonton,etc r distinctly different from the shanghai dumplings of xiaolongbao or the fried version of Yangs.Cantonese dumplings r not so common in Shanghai except maybe at the Bifentang or Crystal Jade.,that too limited varieties on offer n maybe some cantonese cuisine restaurants.I have yet to see a full fledged dimsum restaurant in Shanghai that sell the dimsum on push cart.
