I’ve been to Fufu’s once before with Cindy, Thomas and Chris almost two years ago. We originally went for soup dumplings but they ran out. I haven’t been back til this past weekend. Thomas was in town from California and we met up over lunch and then I spent the rest of the day with him and Kim. I’ve had soup dumplings only once before and it was during my 2nd trip to NYC with Kym, Nam, Meffy at Joe Shanghai’s way back in 2005. Here’s a picture I still managed to have.

So here we are, 4 years after my only experience of soup dumplings (amazing experience) and 2 years after my first trip to Fufu’s Cafe in Houston. They had soup dumplings this time!

The main difference is that in NYC, Joe Shanghai’s dumplings only had broth in it. Fufu’s had some meat. The winner by a mile is NYC. Kind of disappointing as I don’t know when the next time I’ll be in NYC. The broth in Joe Shanghai’s is much more flavorful and I really like their crab broth. However, Fufu was still tasty and it was nice to catch up with an old friend. Pictures of the rest of our feast.
