The Rickshaw Dumpling Truck is in Dumbo on Washington and Front Street today. The owner Kenny Lao, and the chef, Anita Lo (of Annisa) have received numerous requests from the businesses in Dumbo for the truck to come to the neighborhood, and they’ve responded by coming out today. We spoke with Kenny, who said about the visit, “we are psyched that we got requests to come to your neighborhood and hope that it works out. I think DUMBO is full of people that are doing amazing things in new york city and there is a shortage of food for sure! If all goes well we make make it a Monday DUMBO Dumplings thing!” If you like them, please visit them and grab a snack.
You can track them on their website or on their Twitter page. Check out the Midtown Lunch blog for a review of the dumplings. We used to go to the Dumpling Bar on 8th Street until it closed recently, but their dumplings were addictive. The Peking duck dumplings may not be part of the truck but those were delicious, but they have their classic pork and Chinese chive dumplings, which are excellent too. Did anyone get a chance to get some dumplings today?
