If you are in the mood for some delicious buns (and who doesn’t like nice buns?)look no further. Shanghai Asian Mannor. The steamed buns are divine, but don’t neglect the pan fried pork dumplings. Those puppies are also quite satisfying. Its a bit off the beaten path, but they know how to steam a bun!
A bit off the beaten path in Chinatown lies a secret gem—the best soup dumplings in NYC. Take your date inside and eat at the large round family style tables. Order the pork soup dumplings and explore a new fun food together. They serve delicious dumplings full of soup and a meatball. They have food there as well but I recommend coming in for 2 orders of the soup dumplings and complimentary tea.
You are your date will have a great time and can explore Chinatown together. Try a piece of exotic fruit from a vendor or go in a shop and buy some Chinese candies.
