Hey lovelies! So, I am just going to come out and say it. Mimi Cheng’s is the absolute best dumpling place I have ever been to in my entire life. I am not just saying this because my best friend, Marian Cheng, is one of the owners..I truly do LOVE the more than delicious dumplings this lovely little restaurant has to offer. That is why I am MADLY IN LOVE with Mimi’s. Fresh. Organic. Hand-wrapped. Sustainable. Authentic. Crispy. All of the amazing words that describe Mimi Cheng’s dumplings.
Sisters Marian and Hannah Cheng grew up eating their mom’s delicious homemade dumplings… complete with Mimi’s secret sauce. After years of asking for this secret recipe, they decided these dumplings were too good to not share with the people of New York City. They developed a business model to create a sustainable, organic dumpling restaurant focused on creating delicious, dumplings while also serving to leave a positive impact on the community. They consciously realize that each day is a GIFT + undoubtedly this shows in the way they run Mimi’s.
At Mimi’s, they utilize all fresh + local ingredients in all of their dumplings + have mastered the creation of the perfect, light dumpling. At an given time, they have 3 main dumplings on the menu : The Mimi Cheng, the Reinvented Classic, and the Mighty Veggie. My personal fav is the mighty Veggie steamed. They also offer a special dumpling of the month [this month it is the brunch dumpling!] Oh, and don’t even get me started about their amazingly delicious secret sauce….I am craving some just talking about it!
With all of this said, I have some very exciting news! Mimi’s is giving away a free KEEP IT CRISPY tank. You can register below + follow the instructions to receive one of these tee’s for yourself! The more entries you submit, the higher chance you have of winning! The winner will be selected next week.
So please do yourself a favor + head to 179 Second Avenue for the best dumplings of your life. Also, a big shoutout to my best girl Marian for being amazing and going after her dreams.. today is her BIRTHDAY!
