Mimi Cheng's Dumplings
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
