Time Out says

After an unsuccessful search for Chinese-Taiwanese fusion to rival their parents' cooking, sisters Hannah and Marian Cheng unleash secret family recipes at this white-walleddumpling house, named for their mother. Handmade with organic vegetables and meat from Park Slope's Fleisher's Butcher, the ginger-and-scallion pockets come in three varieties: the pork-and-bok-choy Reinvented Classic, the kale-and-shiitake Mighty Veggie and the namesake Mimi Cheng (chicken, zucchini). The 16-seat shop runs on counter service alone, but dumpling lovers can also sit at reclaimed-wood tables to sample house-made mint lemonade and watermelon-cucumber juice, or pan-fried dessert dumplings filled with fresh banana and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
