Got the peanut butter noodle and steam dumpling. The noodle taste a bit floury, it needs blanching. The dumpling has good skin. Overall the taste is average, the price is cheap.

This place is delicious! So cheap and good. Our total order was $15 for 4 good-sized portions. The staff don't speak English, but there is an English menu. There are a few seats if you want to eat in, you can also do takeaway.

The egg and fried dumplings were especially good!

Here's my He Yi Xiaochi timeline: - Read that He Yi Xiaochi was really good - Read more about how good He Yi Xiaochi is - Not go to He Yi Xiaochi because I was self-conscious about my lack of Fuzhou dialect (and Mandarin) - Take 6 months of Mandarin classes - Finally go to He Yi Xiaochi - Discovery that: (1) I didn't need any Mandarin; (2) He Yi Xiaochi is better than I'd even imagined - Abandon my previous belief that Fuzhou food is bland - Bemoan every cauliflower floret that I eat that isn't prepared by the wizards at He Yi Xiaochi - Long to return to He Yi Xiaochi

Cons: low quality food. Pros: none. Inedible food by Western standards. Ordered lamb soup and fried dumplings. Didn't dare trying unknown bloody animal parts floating in my soup bowl. Dumplings were thick skinned, greasy, overfried, with too much leak inside and not worth the price even at 25 cents apiece.

Their pot stickers are not real pot stickers but just fried dumplings. Very oily. Filling is dark and the texture is kind of strange. I tried half and couldn't eat more.

Super cheap and delicious--if you don't speak Chinese don't worry, there's English on the paper takeout menus inside.

No frills dumpling and noodle place. Easy to overlook because the outside signage doesn't even mention food at all. Just look for a yellow awning and motorbikes parked outside. The menu on the wall is only Chinese, but grab a take out menu because there's English. Fried dumplings are $4 for 10, and pretty good. Definitely fried fresh, though I'm not sure if they're made in house. Mine were a little more burnt than I prefer, but hunger lowers your standards. My favorite dumplings in the area are still at Kai Feng Fu further north, but this'll do in a pinch. Cash only, but there's a Chase Bank on 55th and 8th.

We went for lunch walked in and took seats ourselves. Menu available top take and ordered. Hole on the wall dumpling and noodle shop. The guy who took our order understands only Chinese shop just point to the menu to order what we wanted which didnt I didn't mine. Making surprise requests would be difficult. I did appreciate him bringing the noodle out to show me which are which. We ordered the steam dumplings with pork and chives. It was fresh with the dumpling sauce was perfect and 10 of them in an order! Wow. We ordered the tripe mein fun soup, beef noodle soup and the fish ball noodle soup. The fish ball noodle comes with 9 fish ball!! Broth was light and with veggies floating on top. I love the broth but wish there were veggies. Everything was big portion. Overall we enjoy our lunch. The lady serving us was polite as she smiled and nodded when we walked out. I appreciate it. Very affordable and tasty food. We will return back to try their other noodle options.

Stopped in on a whim, based on the "xiaochi" (small bites/snacks) in the the name. The menu appears to have a slight Fujianese bent to it. There were three or four tables inside. We didn't use English to order, but there is a paper menu available with English names for 70% of the items (another menu on the wall was only in Chinese and was consulted by most patrons, as we found out since we were sitting right next to it). We had three appetizers to start: Noodles with peanut sauce, which came up very quickly and tasted like the ideal version of "Cold noodle with sesame sauce" you have at a takeaway place (except it was hot). Make sure to mix in the sauce, which is on the bottom of the plate. There were some scallions in it as well. I believe it was $2. Steamed xiao longbao, which were very standard. Good consistency to the dough. ($3.50) Fried dumplings, which were definitely handmade and had a perfect thickness (IE not too thick) to the skin ($4) On the recommendation of the guy behind the counter (I asked for something "interesting") I had the Omelette with Oysters, which is a typical Fujianese/Taiwanese dish. Was perfectly cooked and very light, with nice bean sprouts inside. The oysters were all great, except for one with a bit of grit (to be expected). There was definitely MSG, which is to be expected as well. ($5) Stir fried mee fan with pork was good as well ($4 for generous portion). Overall good hole in the wall place with very inexpensive, authentic fare.
