Damn those dumplings look good! Might head over to Joe's Shanghai in Chinatown to eat a couple dozen tmrw!!

When I was in New York my friends took me there. We had two orders of the regular pork and two orders of the crab between four people. The total was somewhere under $18, yet it was one of the best meals I had in NY. Damn, I love those things!

No, but I tried speaking Canto to those bastids and they spit back out some mainland tongues. I try though... I try.

Also... interesting how it's fried dumpling in the East Coast, and pot sticker on the West... any other different names?

Those crazy mainlanders. But it would make sense, since dumplings are more of a northern thing...

In the Midwest it's always called pot stickers although sometimes you find various romanizations of gao zi. I've come across gyoza in a Chinesey restaurant, too. wtf?

wtf a straw? amatuers...

my friend in new york swears by dumpling house... well also he lives a few steps from it. where are the best dumpling spots in chinatown?

Yeah... gyoza. That's the usual name for it in fusion restaurants when its in their appetizers. Much more diminutive... these babies are plump and the dough isn't exactly all the way fried so it has some stickiness to it.

There are a handful of them with some form of "dumpling" in the name... tasty dumpling... fried dumpling... dumpling dumpling. They're all $1 for 5 pork x chive--among a plethora of other choices. They also have hot and sour soup for $1 and milk tea (so-so at best) for $0.50.

Either way, you can stuff your face for cheap. Probably not best to gorge on that too often, but you know, a steal is a steal. It just gives me an excuse to weasel my way into Chinatown every week or so...

I think using "gyoza" lends a Japanesey - hence classier - air? Most people associate Chinese food with low expectations. Depressing as fuck.

Milk tea is good but I prefer cold lemon tea. There's something about squashing up the lemon on your own.

I've had some really good dumplings in the past but I can't remember now. It was also a type of Shanghainese dumpling filled with greens and pork, like every other dumpling, but it was tasty.

How is everything so damn cheap? Must really be competitive...

No idea... they just keep on keepin' I guess. There are so many redundant spots in Chinatown, I'm sure they're doing alright--at least enough to make a living and keep the business going.

Shanghainese dumplings? Siu Loung Bow (excuse my butchered Engrish spelling... shot in the dark here)? They're in a rounder stickier bun placed on cabbage leaves and dipped in vineagar? If that's what it is... those are the best... :)

I know what you mean: xiao long bao (those mainlanders again). Ugh, I could eat a boat load. It's soup! It's a dumpling! IT'S BOTH.

The place I had these particular dumplings - not the soup ones - was called Shanghai Restaurant or something, so I just assumed they were Shanghainese.

Dessert: "guiltless Mango cheesecake"

P1020857.jpg

Dinner: (inspired by Thomas Highstreet's) Corrokke & beer

P1020865.jpg

I can't cook for shit so had to rely on store-bought ones... *sulk*

Then the de rigeur after-dinner coffee and snacks.

P1020866.jpg

Bananarilla muffin and cinnamon roll on the plate. "Larb" flavoured Glico Pretz given by the boyfriend.

Yeah, I had no idea wtf "Larb" was either... but it tastes like tomyam on pretzels (both of which I love), so props to him... :)

FUCK. I definitely shouldn't have looked at this thread directly before bedtime. My stomach is growling. Anyways, today I had a turkey club and two egg creams from Bubby's (best restaurant ever? well, definitely close), pancakes, scrambled eggs, and a third egg cream I made myself.

Pizza was what I originally had for myself to eat. Sharksfin was left for me by the parents. And no, it didn't work well together. Had to down a load of water to wash out the taste of pizza before the sharksfin. Thick and long as hell, like noodles!
