Dumpling Man

0 Love It
East Village
The Dumpling Man is the perfect boyfriend. He’s honest: Every one of his mouthwatering hot pockets is made by hand in full view of hungry diners. He’s never boring: Each order of dumplings comes seared or steamed, with four different fillings, such as a classic pork, chive and scallion or a mix of tofu, seitan, shiitake mushrooms and bok choy. He can mix it up: The Marco Polo dumplings are bathed in an Italian-style tomato-basil-Parmesan sauce. And finally, he’s sweet: After such delectable savory snacks, he proffers a hard-to-find Japanese dessert of shaved ice, condensed milk and red beans with green-tea ice cream. The only catch: You’ll have to share him. Line up early, because he might not have enough to go around as the night wears on.
