Pinch Chinese


In case you were wondering, no, not all Chinese food was created equal. Like people, some Chinese food is better than others. Pinch is in that category. This is a new-ish Soho spot helmed by former executive chef for Din Tai Fung, Charlie Chen. The Taiwan-founded chain is Michelin starred, so the man knows a thing or two. True to Soho, the interior is sleek & dark. Dumplings are a focal point with many excellent versions being served - pork, chicken and seafood. After that the menu is a laundry list of deliciousness including dan dan noodles, mapo tofu, cumin ribs, and pork belly. The dumplings are excellent but the noodle & vegetable dishes are what would keep me coming back.
