My search for the best dumplings in New York continues….

Due to my job and my new family responsibilities, I don’t find myself out to dinner nearly as often as I used to. So I’m one of the few out here who waits until the newest restaurants start serving lunch. Lunch is usually my time to go explore now.

So I always get frustrated when a restaurant decides to limit their options at lunch or not offer the full menu. And I understand the difficulties of doing that at some of the top fancy restaurants in the city, but at the new casual dumpling spots? (more…)

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…)
