    Whole crispy tilapia and pork belly banh mi?! *swoon*

    On the other hand, serving xiao long bao (soup dumplings) in this setting is a guaranteed disaster. This is a dish that even authentic Chinese restaurants rarely get right (you need to go to a place that specializes in this dish), so Disney really has zero chance. My recommendation is to skip this one. ..
