The popular NYC Food Crawl is back tonight with a “January Shumai Crawl.” For those of you brave enough to crawl through these cold temperatures, I’m sure the shumai in Chinatown will warm you up! (The organizers are promising short walks between locations this month.) They write: Shumai is a delightful Chinese appetizer that is traditionally served with Dim Sum meals. Dim Sum, or “small treasures,” is a traditional Chinese tasting meal. It comes in both shrimp and pork varieties, and we happily will be offering a vegetarian option. (Also, don’t forget that scallion pancakes are a delightful meat free snack that is easy to find in Chinatown!) Our original crawl was the dumpling crawl, and in that spirit we happily present the January Shumai Crawl.
