Ping’s is one of our favorite dim sum spots in Manhattan’s Chinatown. It’s full of ornate decorations on the walls, big circular tables, and roving carts rattling with har gow, roast pork buns, and crispy-soft zhaliang. A general rule of thumb here: grab the fried shrimp balls as soon as you spot them.
You can get dim sum all day here (which is what we recommend first and foremost), but there’s also a full menu of larger Hong Kong-style dishes like garlic eggplant, and a massive fried crab. The menu skews seafood-heavy for the family-style dishes, and there’s a fish tank where you can see said seafood.
Make sure to bring cash, they don't accept credit cards.
