NYC Cravings Brings Good Shumai to Midtown
I don’t need to remind anybody about the disgusting weather we had last Thursday and Friday, but nothing was going to keep me from trying NYC Cravings pork shumai especially after seeing this foggy picture. Cheap, good shumai is high on my “What We Need in Midtown” list, and Cravings delivered!
Dumpling innards are after the jump…
I waited about 15 minutes in the slushy cold rain and did the 6 block walk back to my office before I could devour my double order. Amazingly, the shumai stayed hot in their Styrofoam containers despite the cold walk back. Though I had seen the pictures I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of meat contained by these perfect thin wrappers, about two bites each. The meat itself was nicely spiced good pork, a bit greasy, but not fatty. My $10 order, the double order plus a vegetarian Zongzi, was a little too much food for me, making this a perfect lunch. Yes, lunch perfection is achieved when I’m full and there’s food left.
