I made this little video this weekend. Check it out and let me know what you think! It's the first in a series...

The Best Soup Dumplings in Manhattan

I was inspired to take some photos and make a regular ol' blog post, but then I decided to mess around and try to distill it into a little video. One thing I can say: it's a completely different art to try to express something in video as opposed to words. Quite frankly, it feels a little "dumbed-down" or bullet-pointed. But then again, it's a completely different medium! Hope you like my little experiment.

  • i would like to testify that these are INDEED the best soup dumplings in the city. while the crab meat in the dumpling gets super dried out at other places (er, Joe’s Shanghai), the innards of these precious jewels stay moist and piping hot. LOVE THEM.

    this is a huge find. thanks Irwin! i’ve been here twice now in 2 weeks, and will go again very soon. we got the pea shoots and the Shanghai Lo Mein with pork, which was also a delight!
