Celebrate Cinco de Cuatro, Cinco de Mayo, Cinco de Everything with New York's newest mash-up creation: Mimi Cheng's dumpling taco!

The East Village dumpling eatery has created a beef stuffed dumpling drizzled with homemade lime crema and served with crisp radish slices and fresh pico de gallo.

Available boiled or fried, these handmade taco-inspired dumplings are available all month long.

Former monthly mash-ups from the all-natural, organic Taiwanese-Chinese eatery have included eggplant parm dumplings with marinara dipping sauce and Thai green curry chicken dumplings with peanuts.

We don't know what the next fusion creation from Mimi Cheng's will be, but we're glad May has 31 days to enjoy these savory Mexican-inspired treats!


Mimi Cheng's is located at 179 Second Ave. between 11th St. and 12th St.
