The sisters behind boutique dumpling parlor Mimi Cheng's opened a Nolita location yesterday, bringing their Taiwanese-inspired dumplings to 380 Broome Street. Hannah and Marian Cheng, who opened the original Mimi Cheng’s in the East Village two years ago, introduced an expanded menu focused on bento boxes yesterday. In addition to dumplings, boxes will be filled with scallion pancakes, housemade pickles, and veggies.
The Cheng sisters brought the same panfried and boiled dumplings that made the original Mimi Cheng’s such a hit. Options include the Mimi Cheng (chicken and zucchini), a veggie dumpling, and a pork and bok choy dumpling. Perhaps the sisters, who previously created dumplings inspired by the burgers at Emily and By Chloe, will collaborate with their Broome Street neighbors Seamore’s and Chacha Matcha next. Check out the Nolita menu below, and let us know what you think if you stop by.
