In a recent post, Jen Kalb mentions "greenies," the round, sometimes disk-shaped dumplings filled with chives and sometimes shrimp (I've also had them with bits of Chinese sausage) that are served at dim sum. I fell in love with these dumplings when I lived in Los Angeles, where they are fried fresh on a fry cart. They get crispy on the outside and the wrapper kind of melts on the inside, giving them almost a cheesy texture. But here in Manhattan they always seemed to be steamed or fried in the kitchen (and are lukewarm and soggy by the time they come around). Does anyone know of a place in New York that serves greenies from a fry cart?
