Joe’s Ginger Review (Chinatown)

Joe’s Ginger

The other week we went to Chinatown in search of soup dumplings.

We ended up not at Joe’s Shanghai (1+ hour wait) but instead at the sister of Joe’s Shanghai: Joe’s Ginger. I believe they are run by the same people. We went here with Bobby’s parents so this must have been in mid-October. The soup dumplings were delicious by the way. Next time we go we are going to just order a whole bunch of dumplings.

    Never heard of Joe’s Ginger but it does sound like the sister of Joe’s Shanghai. Have you been to Shanghai Cafe? I go there when I’m in the mood for some Shanghai food despite the bad serivce, but it’s Chinatown :/

    I’ve heard so much about Angelica Kitchen and I’m waiting for the right time to go. Glad to see a review from you!

    By the way, is there any other vegan/vegetarian restaurant you would recommend that is affordable and tasty (unemployed individuals here!)? Or maybe even Indian or Italian restaurants? In Manhattan or Brooklyn is good, thanks :)

    OH, wow, Maggie, both food photos look amazing. The dumplings look and sound fabulous, and I’m sure they tasted even better!! :) Are they veggie dumplings, or meat?

      @Tiffany: They were meat! I don’t think Chinatown has many veg-friendly options. There is a vegetarian dim sum place on the same street this restaurant was on (Pell Street) but I haven’t been there yet.

    The pantry plate looks fabulous! I don’t think that’s a meal I could find anywhere around here.
