This week, it’s another about damn time type of review article. I have finally made my way to Mimi Cheng’s Dumplings in Nolita. In case you haven’t been flooded on the gram with photos from her dumpling place, Mimi Cheng’s Dumplings are known for “using local and organic ingredients to make their Chinese-Taiwanese dumplings.”
What lead me to try Mimi was not because of just the insane amount of influencers who stand by Mimi but the idea behind Mimi Cheng’s Dumplings which promotes the idea Chinese food isn’t always about the Americanized version of cheap ingredients and MSG but the fact that there’s an art to Chinese food that should be appreciated.
I noticed that Mimi Cheng has monthly specials so since it’s my first time at Mimi’s, might as well give their monthly special Emmy Burger a try:
As excited as I was to try her dumplings, I was slightly disappointed just because of the amount of fat I tasted from the dumpling. As I understand the quality of the meat and the price ratio didn’t even out, I was expecting more of a heavy meatier taste rather than fat and oily. But nevertheless, just like in life, I believe everyone deserves a second chance so maybe when the opportunity does present itself, I’ll try another fan favorite dumpling.
