I've been on a soup dumpling kick recently. Besides trying to perfect my own recipe, I've also been going out and eating them for, you know, research. So when the Feisty Foodie asked if I'd like to try out Nan Xiang in Flushing, I obliged. With a few more friends in tow like TC, Cheese, and Noah from Law and Food we headed out on a brisk night for some delicious food. We arrived on this weeknight to a sparsely filled room. Enough to make business but not enough for a table wait.
I had soup dumpling on my mind but wanted some appetizers to start as well. With my partner in crime (or garbage can) in tow, we shared the spicy beef tripe ($5). This cold dish was excellent. The tripe was tender but still had a slight chew. The spice was definitely noticeable but not offensive at all. I would absolutely order this again.
