This Flushing stalwart is tucked neatly into the basement of Golden Shopping Mall, a bustling Main Street food court. Coming at such a high volume, dumplings are almost all made-to-order, with varieties ranging from the conventional pork-and-chive to more oddball offerings like lamb-and-squash and beef-and-turnip.
No need to stick to one borough—the best dumplings in NYC can be eaten throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. Head downtown to get your soup dumpling fix at one of the best Chinatown restaurants in the city. Exploring new neighborhoods? Take the train to Sunset Park for some of the best dim sum outside Hong Kong. And if you're really on a budget, there are plenty of options for cheap dumplings along the way.
