I find the food at The Dumpling House to be the closest authentic Chinese next to Chinatown in NYC. Their many fresh noodle dishes are so flavorful and they manage to keep the noodles soft but not mushy or overcooked, so the noodles absorb any sauce they are mixed with. The dumpling selection is large, with a few that are not seen in this area, so do try the appetizer dumpling list. The best part? Everything is very reasonably priced, although you wouldn't know from me, since I tend to order multiples of the dumplings.
