Table for Two #27: KungFu Kitchen

For this month's Table for Two, I'll be chatting about KungFu Kitchen and Alexa is featuring LROOM Cafe.

Where  |  KungFu Kitchen, 610 Eighth Avenue
Cuisine  |  Chinese
Price  |  $$ Moderate

What we ordered
  • Handmade xiao long bao/soup dumplings (pork and pork, shrimp & Chinese okra)
  • Pan-friend shrimp and pork dumplings
  • Scallion pancakes
  • Steamed buns with mushroom and bok choy
  • Rose milk bubble tea

What we thought
Alexa and I went to KungFu Kitchen twice in the span of one week! We went last Monday with friends and a few days ago when it was my turn to choose a restaurant, I realized I wanted two things: comfort and convenience. And what's more comforting than delicious soup dumplings on a cold day? Plus it's practically across the street from Port Authority which made it easy for both of us to head home afterwards. Needless to say, we were both very happy we ended up going back to this spot for Table for Two. The soup dumplings, rose milk bubble tea (!) and scallion pancakes are definitely must-orders. We liked the pan-fried ones too but we were so full on everything else that we only managed to eat a couple of these. Neither of us were huge fans of the steamed buns or the noodles we ordered the week before (in my opinion they were too oily). But I can definitely see us coming back again (and again) for the items on the menu we did love. It's not quite a new favorite but we really like this place!
