This cash-only spot makes some of our favorite food in Chinatown. Including some incredibly meaty soup dumplings that come with a combo of crab and pork. But more than just the dumplings, we love the rice cakes with shredded pork and cabbage, as well as the hot and spicy wontons that come with peanut sauce, sesame seeds, and chili oil on top. The space isn’t huge, so we wouldn’t recommend bringing more than four people here with you - but it’s great for a few out-of-towners if you’re playing host.
