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.
