Shanghai Cafe
100 Mott St
New York, NY 10013

The Scene
Chinatown aficionados know this relative newcomer for its exceptionally juicy soup dumplings, and the restaurant brings something upbeat to this still lower-income neighborhood: a bright, pleasant, cafe atmosphere with a robust menu. Peach walls, metal mesh chairs, and rainbow neon ceiling tubes lend a perky ’80s feel, and the roomy booths and plentiful seating help avoid table-sharing occurrences. – Citysearch

Another one of my Cheap Eats spots that I visit frequently in a month! It’s always packed here on weekends with foreigners and people that live around the neighborhood. The food comes quick and is just as good as Joe’s Shanghai, take a look at what I had after the jump…

Fried Dumplings – luvz the texture of the skin!

Crab Meat Dumplings – a must have, I can only manage to eat 2 pieces each time haha, its way too filling if I tried for some more

Pork Chop Noodle Soup – its very plain and doesn’t have a lot of taste to it but for some reason I like it

Dessert – Red Bean Dumplings!! soooo goodddddd
