Mini Mee had to eat. Mini Mee, The Dumpling King, of course opted for “Little Dumpling” in Little Neck. Along came Mee Pea Tea the Dumpling Prince, for the ride and the eats. The three of us enjoyed dumplings and an order off the lunch special menu.
Dumpling Royalty, of course, each ordered the Steamed Pork Dumplings. Made from scratch, the dumplings took quite some time to be served. But, they were well worth it. Mini Mee rated them a 4 (using the same 1 to 5 scale that The Chinese Quest uses when they rate Chinese restaurants).
I opted for the Beef with Broccoli which was served with a choice of soup. I opted for the Wonton Soup. The Wonton Soup was different that most the other Wonton Soups that I have experienced. The broth wasn’t clear, and there was nothing in the broth aside from two small wontons. That said, it was still delicious. Though not as delicious as the Beef with Broccoli. My main course was served up way too quickly, before I really had much of a chance to finish my soup, and well before the Dumplings were ready.
Mini Mee loved the dumplings so much that he ordered a second serving.
The Chinese Quest had reviewed Little Dumpling, and that’s one of the main reasons that we have come back to this Chinese restaurant time and again. Little Dumpling is located at 252-20 Northern Boulevard, Little Neck, NY 11362.
Just a little bonus parking secret for you. There’s very limited parking in front of the restaurant, which is in a strip mall on the south side of Northern Boulevard, half a block west of Little Neck Parkway. Here’s the secret. There is underground parking, and it’s FREE, which you enter off the side street west of the restaurant. Ignore the sign that no SUV’s are permitted (as everyone else did! Doesn’t anyone drive a sedan any more??)
Little Dumpling will be a secret no more now that we have written about it a few times.
Have you dined there yet? What do you think of Little Dumpling?
