Joe's Shanghai

9 Pell St
Manhattan, NY 10013


Joe’s has branches in Flushing and in Midtown, but it’s the Chinatown location that everybody flocks to, forming a line down Pell Street every night. It’s the perfect place for a quick lunch or dinner. The extensive menu hits the mark on all your favorite Chinese dishes, but the real specialty is the soup dumplings, filled with pork, or a combination of pork and crab. They’re called steamed buns on the menu, but the waiter will automatically know what you want. It’s brightly lit and bustling—a place for a fun meal, not romance or lingering.
