              The steamed dumplings at Super Taste are really good but I haven't read much talk about them

              1. re: rschwim

                super taste and lan zhou (144 e bway) both have good dumplings, lan zhou has them steamed or fried

                i like Fu Zhou Cuisine's the best (although ST and LZ aren't that far behind)

                  $8 for a bag of frozen ones to go at E.Broadway 144. Also, to regulars, they will pile on the beef in the soup....Thwap, thwap, thwap...

                    yah i buy the frozen ones from fuzhou cuisine, same pricing ...ridiculously cheap

                I checked out Super Taste. Almost went to Lan zhou, but remembered 144 E bway but the name on the sign was different from what I thought you posted. And they had a "B" health rating, so I went to Super Taste which I googled and found. It is only a couple of doors from Sheng Wang.
                The hand pulled noodles were good I thought. The dish I got with them was very spicy. I think they called it Qi Mountain Beef Soup with hand pull noodles. As they say in Thai restaurants , it was "thai spicy". The noodle quality was great. I also put some of the noodles in my fish ball soup, it spiced it up a bit, but that was good also. It was the fish balls with meat in the center. The steamed dumplings were excellent.
                I proceeded to Sheng Wang and got some stir fried knife cut noodles to go. That will be my breakfast.
                By memory and i'm not certain, but I think Sheng Wangs hand pulled noodles were thicker than Super Taste. I think the quality is about equal to Super Taste but the Knife cut noodles stir fried at Shen Wang are most memorable.

                  The English signage at Lanzhou has a spelling error- it reads Lamzhou.
