The minced pork over rice was about $5 and came with a delicious tea egg.

The oyster pancake was full of juicy oysters. The batter was crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. I loved it.

I’m not gonna lie — I make better duck tongues. When I get back to New York I’m going to defrost the ones I have in the freezer and dazzle myself.

The beef noodle soup was “ok”. The broth was “fine” but the beef was too “chewy”, according to someone in the know.

My favorite part was the pork and chive soup dumplings. I learned that these xiǎolóngbāo (小笼包) require cubes of broth jelly. The cubes are wrapped up with the filling and, when steamed, fill the pouches with a delicious soup. I had these dumpling for the first time at Din Tai Fung in Tokyo. I could eat them every day for the rest of my life.
