Sisters Hannah and Marian Cheng just opened their bright, airy little dumpling shop in the East Village and it's been slammed every night so far. The menu is tiny—just three varieties of Taiwanese-style dumplings ($8 for six, $10 for eight), but all these beauties are made by hand with organic vegetables and pasture-raised meats from Fleisher's. Our favorite is the Mimi Cheng, named for the owners' mother. It's a chicken and zucchini combo enveloped in a thin skin and served with a bright and vinegary dipping sauce—the shop's delicious secret.
