Mimi Cheng's Dumpling's: Meh Meh

Cute spot, small but airy, with communal tables and counters [ledges?] along the walls. Counter service is very friendly.

l had the "Reinvented Classic" dumplings: minced organic pork and chive. l thought the filling was very underwhelming, but the skin was very good, thin and crispy from the frying. The much-hyped dumpling sauce was, um, much-hyped. Tasted like vinegary dumpling sauce to me, but it did make the dumplings taste better. House-made lemonade was very good, nice and astringent, not too sweet, quite refreshing.

At $8.00 for six dumplings, this place is no bargain, and, given my druthers, l'll take Prosperity or any number of others.
