My husband is Taiwanese and makes wonderful dumplings, so we enjoy trying dumplings whenever possible. Joe's Shanghai deserves its high rating for tasty dumplings, especially their signature soup pork dumplings. No reservations, and the Chinatown location can be a bit hard to find, plus it is cash only. Be prepared to wait and be seated at a large table with strangers. This wasn't a problem for us and my Asian NYC friend. There is a large menu, with many appetizer, soup, and entrée choices, with very large portions. Shrimp dumplings and onion pancakes were excellent, and the shrimp noodle dish and lions head meatballs were also delicious. Prices were reasonable. I would consider coming back here and highly recommend it if you are a dumpling lover.
