This is the sixth dumpling stall to open in greater Chinatown, and it looks just like the others, featuring a large, open kitchen; a handful of rickety tables; and a menu scrawled on the wall in Chinese and English. The enthusiastic staff turns out more than just dumplings and aromatic beef sandwiches, though, including a wonderfully bland and sweet mung bean porridge (spike it with fish and chile sauces) and "noodles with meat and bean sauce," a giant heap of light wheat noodles inundated with a gooey flavorful sauce of beef and braised bean curd; one of the city's best cheap feeds.
