What you’re getting: Steamed pork and dill dumplings
Whether you’re a vegetarian, pescetarian, or carnivore, there is a dumpling with your name on it at Qing Hua. I mean, who doesn’t love pockets of dough that are filled with the softest, most deliciously cooked meat and vegetables, studded with herbs and then allowed to swim in hot, salty broth... for $9.99?
What you're getting: Shrimp, pork, peanuts, and Chinese chives dumplings, or other dim sum
Though you can sometimes judge a book by its cover, you really shouldn’t disqualify this great Chinese restaurant based on its unappealing venue. The Chinese fare is excellent all around at Kim Fung (also known as Maison Kam Fung), but people come back again and again for the plentiful, over-laden dim sum trolleys, and the cheap prices (three-four dumplings for under $5, sans special).
