White Bear is a tiny spot in Flushing with five small tables and a big menu taped above the counter, and it’s worth a trip here for some truly exceptional dumplings. That menu we just mentioned has 34 options on it, but the most popular thing by far is the plate of wontons with hot sauce (no. 6). The wontons come filled with pork and vegetables, and they’re incredibly soft and just a little bit chewy. An order comes with 12, which is good for a light meal (you can always get 100 frozen wontons to go if you want to make some more at home).
