Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co.

$$$$
Perfect For:Quick Eats

Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co. is a counter-service spot on the UWS with no actual counter in sight. Here, you order on a monitor fastened to a wall. It’s a little like checking into a flight at an airport kiosk, but with spicy dan dan noodles and shrimp dumplings instead of a printed boarding pass. Oh, and they also serve pickle-flavored soft serve (which tastes more lime-y than pickle-y). The noodles, dumplings, and sides aren't bad, but there are much better options for dan dan noodles nearby (like Han Dynasty).
