Joe's Shanghai, Flushing, Chinatown, and Midtown - Soup Dumplings Chain Also Has Three Locations in Japan

Recommended Posts

Well you knew this place was going to be good when there was a line out the door and down the street with all sorts of people waiting on Thanksgiving Day. We took our number and it really wasn't too long before we were seated. We sat with another bunch of people originally from Oklahoma City who now live in NYC. This place was filled with Thanksgiving refugees fleeing their normal plans for one reason or another.

We had the pork soup dumplings which were good, although they may have sat in the steamer basket just a little too long as the tops of some were getting a little dry, but the flavor was excellent and they had a good amount of soup in them. We also had the dried beef which came with a side of rice and broccoli. I don't like a lot of the sticky sweet americanized chinese sauces, but this was ok, I liked the crispiness and ate most of the broccoli. The menu was overwhelming and the waiter came so quick that I just made a guess at what I might like and this turned out to be acceptable.

I couldn't seem to pull up my messages on here from my iphone to figure out what was recommended to me... but it ended up being just fine and quite tasty and Mom was very happy, she was just in love with soup dumplings.

"Soup Dumpling Mecca, Joe's Shanghai, has Reopened Midtown Location" by Layla Khabiri on ny.eater.com

[Note: Any medium who reports on the closure due to a health-code violation has an obligation to report on the subsequent reopening with the same level of zeal; I could find nothing regarding the reopening by gothamist.com, so was forced to use ny.eater.com.]
