Rickshaw Dumplings

In the past, it seems that there were some mixed reviews about this place. I went last night for a quick bite for the first time, mostly interested in sampling the chocolate soup dumplings. I orderd the chicken dumplings with salad, a thai iced coffee and naturally the chocolates. I went around 9 p.m. and there was no wait. The thai iced coffee was pretty standard, though a bit darker than I usually would take it. The dumplings were absolutly delicious (I ordered them pan fried). The dumplings were great on their own but the peanut dipping sauce a fantastic addition. I'm not usually a salad person, but also wasn't in the mood for soup. The salad was fresh, contained some sort of sauteed onion and with the thai peanut dressing, it really was on the whole a very satisfying meal. I only wished they would let you mix the types of dumplings.

After the dumplings, I was a bit full but had to at least try a chocolate dumpling. At first, I thought the texture a bit odd but once I bit in, that sweet, rich perfect chocolate oozed out and it all came together. What a fantastic treat...sinful but if you're a chocolate lover you must try. Does anyone know what type/brand of chocolate they use for the dumpling filling?
My meal totaled $15. Not the cheapest cheap eats but for a full meal, drink and dessert it is for sure cheap in NYC. I can't wait to go back and try the duck dumplings...
