Of the four northern Chinese dumpling stalls in Chinatown this is our favorite, offering pork-and-chive pot stickers, boiled beef sandwiches on wedges of homemade sesame bread, vegetable-filled hot and sour soup, and the legendary chive box (ask for "chives and egg pancake");a half-moon pie filled with scallions, vermicelli, scrambled egg, and, sometimes, baby shrimp. The box is prepared on the spot and cooked to order. Also look for the jar of summer kimchi at the carryout window. Best of all: Most selections are around $1, and there are bags of frozen dumplings to take home.
