Sisters Hannah and Marian Cheng struck a chord when they opened Mimi Cheng’s in the East Village two years ago, featuring Taiwanese dumplings made from healthy, locally sourced ingredients. At their second outpost, which opens on Broome Street on Wednesday, they’ve slightly expanded their menu to include bento boxes and scallion pancakes, but they’re still focusing their operation on what they do best: made-to-order dumplings, based off their mother’s secret recipe. Take a look:
