MIMI CHENG'S, 380 Broome Street (between Mulberry and Mott Street), Nolita
Sometimes I’m wrong – believe it or not. Food blogging is not always precise and many factors weigh in to how I feel about a meal.

So while it’s not always possible to return to a restaurant (there’s always a new place to try and believe it or not, my funds are limited), I do like to sometimes try again at a place that was less impressive to me to see what I may have missed.

SHANGHAI ASIAN CUISINE, 14 Elizabeth Street (between Canal and Bayard Street), Chinatown

A few years ago when I was in the thick of my dumpling search around NYC, I paid a visit to Shanghai Asian Manor. I wasn’t overly impressed with their soup dumplings prefering the others around the neighborhood.

Small Little Storefront

Just recently I stumbled upon a storefront with a similar font and logo as Shanghai Asian Manor, this one with the name Shanghai Asian Cuisine. Turns out they are indeed related (although this used to have different owners). Figured maybe I should give the company a second chance. (more…)

PACIFICANA, 813 55th Street (at 8th Avenue), Sunset Park, Brooklyn

It was very strange coming to Pacificana and saying no to all the women who stopped by with carts. This massive banquet hall is most known for their authentic dim sum. If you’ve never experienced dim sum, Pacificana is the place to start. Women come around with an endless option of dishes and you say yes to those you want. Before you know it, you’ve had a giant meal of little Chinese bites and usually the bill is a lot lower than you expect. (more…)

JOE'S SHANGHAI, 9 Pell Street (between Bowery and Doyers Street), Chinatown

The first place most New Yorkers, including myself, have ever tasted soup dumplings is probably at Joe’s Shanghai. It opened in Flushing in 1995 and then soon opened a second location in the heart of Chinatown.

That’s part of why it’s so popular. It’s pretty old in terms of restaurants catering to Shanghainese cuisine and it’s in the middle of where everybody wants to eat Chinese food.

21 SHANGHAI HOUSE, 21 Division Street (between Catherine and Market Street), Chinatown

The new restaurants that open in the heart of Chinatown never get the same amount of press and fanfare as the hot restaurants that open in Brooklyn or Chelsea. So they often slip under-the-radar. (more…)

KUNG FU LITTLE STEAMED BUNS RAMEN, 811 Eighth Avenue (between 48th and 49th Street), Hell's Kitchen

For my dumpling reviews, it’s been a while since I’ve ventured much further outside one of this city’s Chinatowns. I especially did not expect to find myself in the Theater District for legitimate dumplings.

But that’s exactly where Kung Fu Ramen sits – on Eighth Avenue just a few blocks away from most of the big hotels and splashy Broadway theaters. (more…)
