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 🙂
@Yin: Wow I can definitely give you a list! My favorites are:
–Souen (they have a few locations – souen.net) – pretty inexpensive, and delicious food
–Good Health Cafe (upper east side – 74th and 1st) – not just vegetarian but delicious.
I think I actually did a post on this… trying to dig it up now…
same here. screw up the budgeting thing… I’m just spend on whatever please me! 😉
ya maggie! do what works for you and keeps you balanced and happy!
Man alive Maggie, you find the coolest dishes!
Looking forward to your “to-do list” posting…I love my list making!
This post really made me laugh. Screw the Budget.. Have a great weekend
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.
Oh, just curious–I eat meet these days! 🙂
This shows so well how you can get the best of everything when you mix well. 🙂
The pantry plate looks fabulous! I don’t think that’s a meal I could find anywhere around here.
Oh dumplings! I have had any in AGES!
