Dumplings & Noodle Eatery to Open on 46th Street

A dumplings and noodles eatery will be opening on 46th Street next door to Pio Pio Riko.

The restaurant, which will be located at 45-24 46th Street, is expected to open in late December, according to its owner, who was reluctant to provide too many details at this point.

The eatery will consist of about 30 seats and there will not be table service. The owner described it as “fast casual.”

The menu will consist of soup, baos (steamed buns filled with pork/beef/vegetables), and a wide selection of noodles and dumplings (both steamed and fried). The food will include a mix of Chinese and other Asian flavors. There are also plans to get a liquor license.

The owner has another restaurant—offering the same style of food—in Park Slope.

The business owner was attracted to Sunnyside due to its diverse population.  “I like the mixed neighborhood and there are few [restaurants] like this in the area.”

The restaurant is moving into a portion of the space that was once occupied by Grand 99 Cent Store, which left about 2 years ago. The other portion of the site was leased to  Signature Paint & Home Center, which opened this summer.

Too bad there’s no outdoor seating. That block should be closed to traffic and be turned into a nice pedestrian area. Our neighborhood is overrun by motor vehicles and it’s enough already. Very few drivers need to make a right onto 46th, and the sidewalks are packed with people who are walking!

Let’s get rid of the smelly taco truck, while we’re at it. I don’t know what organ meat they’re using but it smells foul and there’s a big grease stain on the sidewalk as a result. How nice that they can just drive away and not have to worry about the mess they’ve created.

Backing the truth

Please. Just check the yelp reviews. It might be referred to as the “special tax.” Pio pio is racist-bottom line.


Haha “special tax”.

It’s obvious to anyone that “Backing the truth” is the same poster as “Truth”. You seem so invested in this… maybe you should start a blog.


Also why do you have to play the race card. If I was as racist as you suspect why would I go to eat at a Peruvian resturant


Not a xenophobe or racist , the few times I went there I actually loved the food, but each time I order food and drink when I got the cheque there was always a extra charge and after consulting with friends I found out this always happens to non Latinos who eat there. So go ahead if you and eat there if you want


Wait, so during the multiple times that you saw this extra charge, you didn’t ask the server what the extra charge is for? Are you afraid of the repercussions of asking a simple question, or just lazy?

What’s your rant got to do with me be overcharged at a resturant , any chance of a civilized debate without crying race


I don’t think anyone believes that you were really charged “extra” because you are white.


Why are people “liking” or “disliking” my comment? I was just asking a question! Someone commented about the “white people” charge and I wanted to know what that meant.


Great news to share with the family.
I’m a African American married to Asia Burmese Australian, the family eat out about 3-4 nights per week, we welcome you to our great Sunnyside.


About time we get something different. I love me some pork buns. Hopefully they keep the place roach free

Also the truth

Ah yes, the special “white people” charge that has literally never been applied to any bills.


Sunnyside could replace Flushing as the Chinatown of Queens, and Manhattan “foodies” would have a much shorter trip on the #7 line.

I think that’s a nightmare scenario that the residence of Sunnyside would like to avoid.


Your grammar was okay but you made a really embarrassing mistake in spelling. Considering that Spell Check is so ubiquitous, there’s really no excuse. Did you go to school here in Queens?

We could do with a Xian Famous Foods round here! But I’m happy about this new place!


oooh I love Xian.

But really I think any decent sit down Chinese place would do.

It’s really bizarre that Sunnyside lacks in good Chinese and Indian restaurants when teh rest of the borough abounds in good food from these places!

I’m pretty happy with Biryani House. It may not be the best, but I’ve never had a bad meal there.


YAY – Although the new Tibetan dumpling place has good dumplings the rest of the menu is a bit lacking…so I hope this brings more spunk/flavor
