There are some new kids in town and they know how to do it right.
Step 1: don’t confuse your patrons with too many options.
Step 2: stay open late (11:30pm).
Step 3: be open 7 days a week so no one has to remember when you’re closed.
Onto the good stuff…roll dough into balls.
Flatten into discs, stuff with filling (3 choices – pork and beef with cabbage, chicken with mushroom, and lentils/mushroom/tofu – 5 for $3.50).
Order dessert, “shave ice”. Choose your flavor.
And enjoy the simplicity of hot, savory dumplings followed by cool, crunchy ice. Lovely.
Eton – 205 Sackett Street between Henry and Hicks in Carroll Gardens Brooklyn
Open 7 days 11:30am-11:30pm (or until the food runs out ;-) ).
Coming this fall – hot soup with hand-pulled noodles. Can’t wait.
