Soup Dumplings on Long Island

Where do we find soup dumplings in Nassau or Suffolk?

  1. Red Tiger Dumpling House in Stony Brook looks to be the sole purveyor these days. Might be easier to head West to Flushing.

      Thanks emarcus! We had a place nearby on Merrick Road in Bellmore a few years ago that did the job for a short while, but they never made it in the business and sold to an Asian Confusion joint. I was hoping to avoid heading west under most circumstances, and crossing over the county line... but it looks like you are correct, Flushing, for now, it is.
      (I usually end up at Gyro World on Northern Blvd though...)

      Updates welcomed!

        In Queens I usually go to Kung Fu Xiao Long Bao at 59-16 Main Street. Just a block north of the LIE and there's always street parking.

          A while ago, Nan Xiang Dumpling House on Prince street had chop stick wrappers that listed Little Neck, as a new spot they were going to open. I was sooo excited! I asked several times and they iniatially said soon, soon. But alas, it never came to be....But Hope springs eternal

      2. I have had the dumpling soup at Jani's in Hicksville (Nassau County).

        It was a few years ago and it was excellent, reminiscent of Joe's Shanghai or is it Shanghai Joe's?


        1. Pearl East on Northern in Manhasset has them and they are acceptable. My soup dumpling loving young son enjoys them and he has had them everywhere from Flushing to Shanghai. Of course, if you are that far west you might as well go another couple miles for the best. I agree with Erica, my son and I have been scratching our itch at Kung Fu.

            If I lived in Great Neck, I would live in Flushing. Wait, that makes no sense!

              A while ago I wrote on Chowhound that the best thing about western Nassau, in terms of food, is the proximity to Queens. There is no better place on earth to eat if you want diversity. And a tasty meal.
