Lately, I've been eating out a lot at different restaurants and cafes, so have no fear because there will be a lot of posts coming your way as soon as this semester is over and I have free time.
It's been less than a year since Will and I last visited Nan Xiang Dumpling House in Flushing, but we decided to give it a second shot since we were already in Queens one evening. We arrived around 6-6:30PM and already there was a 10-15 minute wait, same as last time.
The experience was close to sub par, but at least the soup dumplings made up for it.
It reminded me a lot of the fresh soy milk and tofu an aunt of mine used to make when she owned this establishment in Toronto.
|Seafood Crispy Noodles|
|Pork Soup Dumplings|
They were made fresh and served hot! Each soup dumpling was squirting out the rich and savory broth with the chunky pork filling. I was so excited that I ate all three faster than I normally would and I was soup dumpling satisfied instantly.
|Shanghai Shu Mai|
When it finally did come, the waiter apologized for the delay. The Shanghai shu mai is basically delicious sticky rice wrapped in a dumpling or wonton skin. The Shanghai shu mai was absolutely tasty and worth every penny. It had just the right amount of flavor in it and very fresh!
Overall, there were up's and down's in our experience at Nan Xiang Dumpling House. If it weren't for the tasty, fresh soup dumplings than I don't know if I would have been happy. So far, this restaurant is on my top place to go for savory, hot soup dumplings and for cheap eats.
Will and I ordered four items and including tax and tip, our meal only cost about $25-$30 which is very cheap and good price.
