i recently visited nyc. my friend who is a resident of nyc took me to eat in a new Chinese dumpling restaurant in flushing. what is unusual about this reastaurant is that it is actually the branch of a very famous chinese restaurant in tianjin city in china. the restaurant is only specialized in making steamed dumplings (or they can be considered as steamed buns by some). the restaurant in china dates back to pre-revolutionary era (if anyone is interested, i can research to find out how long the restaurant in china has been around). anyhow, the dumplings are so delicious that the restaurant used a pun as its name "dog wont touch" (in chinese, the name is pronouced as "gou bu li",which in English literally means "dog not touching."
the restaurant offers about six kinds of dumplings, both the meaty kind and the vegetarian kind. you get eight for about 4 dollars. but the best kind is called "tang bao," which in English means,"juicy buns," refering to the rich juice that is contained in the filling.
being a chow hound from china, i love good food. when i had juicy buns in the restaurant, i was very empressed how comparable they are to those made in China.
since i am not from nyc, i dont remember the exact street address of the chinese restaurant. it is not on the main steet of flushing, but is in a side street perpendicular to roosevelt street. but you ask any chinese from flushing, (especially if you can pronounce the chinese name), they can show you where it is.
