Venue Info

A favorite for Taiwanese dumplings, the Nolita location of Mimi Cheng's is close enough to the glowing ‘Little Italy’ sign that you could hit it with one of the steaming morsels. Three classics (chicken & zucchini, pork & cabbage with bok choy, and an egg & veggie medley of kale, shiitakes, zucchini, and carrots) are the stars of bento boxes that you can pair with bottled kombucha. The white-walled, fast-casual space has a comfortable air with window and outdoor seating. Whether you order the dumplings boiled or fried, be sure to dip them: the addictive ‘secret sauce’ has a tongue-tickling zing.
