One man's personal history of Chinese food in #NewYork .
One of Chinese cooking's greatest champions in America is a white, Jewish, Brooklyn-born hippie teenager, and the restaurateur behind RedFarm and Decoy in the West Village and Upper West Side. Here's Ed Schoenfeld's personal history of how New York's Chinese cuisine became what it is today.

The mother of all teas!
Oolong tea is so uncommon in the West we don't even have an English word for it, and that's a shame, because when it comes to tea, no category offers more diversity of flavor, complexity, and body than oolongs. And no style better shows what carefully manipulated processing can do to a tea leaf.

Vintage dim sum parlor dating back to 1920 with a drink menu that includes tea, beer & wine.- Google
"The shrimp and snow pea leaf dumplings are excellent, as are the soup dumplings."
"Pretty decent dim sum but you come here because it's a new york institution."

The dim sum was good. I'm one of those disappointed with the disappearing carts and here you order dim sum off the menu. Went in on a Sunday so some items took a while to come and they didn't flow out the way I would have liked them to. We felt rushed by our server and she seemed to have been anxious to get us out. She couldn't have hidden her annoyance each time we asked her for something.

This restaurant is located in Chinatown in Manhattan, NY (NY, NY). It is recommended by one of my Chinese friends. He said this is a specialized Chinese dim sum place. I was thrilled with the new culinary experience with him there. There were actually a lot of different foods and they came out of the kitchen fast. We had the most common and popular foods such as Fried Sampler, Egg Rolls, and Dumplings (shumai shrimp dumplings). We also had stuffed eggplan, which was amazingly good. The bkite size Steamed Spare Ribs are also good. I think we had a few more foods. These were all delicious. What we had were all between $3.50 to $4.50 price range for each. I was not crazy about the cooked chicken feet. The only real problem I had there were the large number of fried foods served there. This is a good place to go with multiple people to try new sampling of exotic Chinese foods. Nevertheless, if you want to go alone, I rather recommend you to go to an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet restaurant in Brooklyn, where most of these dim sum (in addition to over a dozens of other kinds of foods) are also served with much cheaper price. Also be aware this place takes only cash and not VISA credit card.

This is one of the longer-standing and iconic restaurants in Chinatown. It's tucked away and the block is famous for movies and TV shows being shot here. They do what they do and they do it well. They have gluten-free options but they also have another restricted menu for celiacs.

Can't go wrong with this place! Must go! Great staff, amazing food. Simple, clean, and affordable. Sitting at the bar for one or two people is highly recommended. Else, wait for a table. Busy during the weekends, so go early, or expect to wait 30-40-mins at a time. Weekdays are best, especially early supper/dinner time. Shanghainese Soup Dumplings are the go to dish. Pork Buns, Egg Rolls, and Pan Fried Dumplings are also good choices, to name a few.

Love it! Great food. Come in, sit down, check off what you want on the menu/checklist and within minutes your dumplings begin to arrive. Try the pork bun, shrimp and snowpea dumplings and the egg rolls. Get there early because the place can get real busy. Not unusual to see people standing on the street waiting for their number to be called. Interesting side note, Doyers Street is the "Bloody Angle" where the old Chinese street gangs used to battle it out with knives, clubs and hatchets if you're interested in history.

Dimsum here is not bad at all. It is not the best maybe. The staff is surprisingly nice. Typically Chinese place, they yell at you. Ha! Main customer here is non-chinese. Meaning the food may not be authentic. But still good. Would visit again.

Pretty decent dim sum but you come here because it's a new york institution. Plus they have dim sum all day everyday. And some decent gluten send stove options although it's not great for celiacs.
