Completing the jigsaw puzzle that has turned Manhattan's Chinatown from dim sum hell to dim sum paradise, this old-fashioned Cantonese restaurant holds down the lower end by offering unbelievably cheap cart-borne tidbits. Three of us enjoyed seven dishes for $11.90, including excellent tripe and turnips, decent pork-shrimp shu mai, and Shanghai meatballs that were a bit rubbery, but still delectable. While the dim sum may lack the delicacy of places like Oriental Garden (on Elizabeth) and Oriental Food (on Mott), the price is right, and, as added incentive, Wing Shoon occupies the former space of the Garden Café, where Isaac Bashevis Singer held court with his fellow Yiddish literati.
