Dumpling House - new reason to come here

I'm starting a new thread on this

So i went there last night after eating at super taste and i've decided there is a new reason to come here besides dumplings, they have a large section of new small dishes that are worth trying...if you look at the menu they have a section that says "Beijing Style Buns + Stuffed Pancakes" and so far the two things I've tried on this menu are very good and definitely worth trying

here's what's listed in this section:
- pork fried buns (sheng jian bao)
- pork & scallion streamed roll (can't read the characters)
- chive & egg pancake (jiu cai zi)
- cabbage & pork pancake (bai cai zhu rou bing)
- egg pancake (dan bing)
- onion & beef pancake (niu rou bing)

Here's what i thought of what i tried
- chive & egg pancake: this is very tasty, its kind of like a jamaican beef patty except its stuffed with egg, chives and glass noodles, its great with some sriracha.
- onion & beef pancake: i mistakenly thought was the same beef roll that is all over LA (i read the 3rd character wrong b/c i just glanced at it last time) instead its actually more similar to the bings that the now defunct "bing lady" used to sell except its not covered in sesame seeds, the filling was chopped green onions and beef, there also happens to be alot of soup (i.e. fat) inside of it that is sort of like a xiao lon bao...anyhow very tasty nonetheless

Also they have hot soy bean milk (dou jiang) that is pretty good, its hot and not too sweet...not as awesome as the flower shop lady in queens, but still good. They also have kimchi (la bai cai) and sour & spicy cucumber (suan la huang gua) for sale, haven't tried it yet, but it looks tasty.

In the other post, i also talked about the pancake with peking duck, which is just like the beef sesame pancake except it has sliced roast duck and hoisin sauce....quite tasty

Anyhow, I know there has been a sort of Dumpling House backlash and everyone is on the Properity train, but I think there is a new reason to come to dumpling house as they're offering some very tasty snacks that aren't available anywhere else in manhattan to my knowledge
