Nan Xiang Express is the fast-casual sister of the legendary soup dumpling eatery, Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao. The new restaurant will open on Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills on March 8th with an emphasis on takeout and delivery.

With a dumpling-centric menu, Nan Xiang Express offers a variety of appetizers, dim sum, and noodles. Signature items include Soup Dumplings, Pan-Fried Buns, Wontons, Shredded Pepper with Beef Noodle Soup, and Chive Box, among others. Although the menu is not as extensive as Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, the restaurant says it is packed with the same flavors.

"We are inspired by the dedication of customers who were willing to travel long distances to enjoy the soup dumplings at Nan Xiang during the pandemic," says the Co-Founder and Owner Eddie Zheng, "We decided to expand our reach and bring the delicate dumplings to more neighborhoods in the country."

Nan Xiang Express is also announcing plans to open 30 additional locations in Brooklyn, Washington D.C., Boston, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
