Remember the other day, when we were recommending restaurants where you could celebrate the impending Chinese New Year, and we said to try super-trendy Red Farm? Yeah, well, here's a little warning: pad your wallet, buddy, because their soup dumplings are gonna cost you.
Yes, that's right, two soup dumplings (aka xiao long bao), filled with black truffles and chicken broth, then topped with yet more truffles, will set you back $18, for what is approximately four bites of food. Feel free to wash them down with a $5 coke from David Chang, then go home and weep quietly on your saggy, misshapen couch. Happy New Year!
