While Industry City is known for its architecture, design and biotech innovations, there is one aspect of this New York City microcosm that we hunger for the most: the food. Located on the waterfront in Sunset Park, the warehousing and manufacturing complex happens to be filled with deliciously unique restaurants of all types. Naturally, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of the very best options in the area:

1. Yaso Tangbao

Home of the Nanxiang soup dumpling, Yaso Tangbao brings Shanghai street food to the confines of the city. The soup dumpling, which dates back to 1871, has been polished and perfected by this New York City restaurant. It’s offered in three different varieties: Yaso Pork Soup Dumplings, Blue Crab and Pork Soup Dumplings, and Spicy Pork Soup Dumplings — each savory and delicious in its own unique way.

Yaso Tangbao also offers other authentic Shanghainese dishes like steamed baos and Chicken Shao Mai (sticky rice dumplings), along with a variety of noodle dishes. Along with its restaurant in industry city, Yaso Tangbao can be found in Downtown Brooklyn, and soon, Midtown East.
