Two of those include Red Bamboo and The Vegetarian Dim Sum House.
1. Red Bamboo 140 W4th Street New York, NY
This is the place jk took me too when I was in college that made me fall in love with fake meat. More specifically, their veggie barbecue buffalo wings. Yum. They even put little sticks in it so it's like a 'bone'. Also, this is the only barbecue sauce I've found whose smell doesn't make me nauseous.
2. The Vegetarian Dim Sum House at 24 Pell St New York, NY
This is my dim sum dream. Going to dim sum, ordering random things off of a menu without asking "does this have meat/pork/fish/shellfish in it?". They have a little dim sum check off menu as well as a real menu. I'm sure the real menu is fine, but the dim sum [small plates for cheap] is the real prize. We got six dishes which turns out to be way too much for two people. I'd go with 2 dishes/person (especially if not TOO hungry) and share.
Don't ask me what we ordered, just know it was delicious. Though I will say, if you make it here make sure to get the sesame balls. mmmmm. This place is really in the heart of 'real' china town (not the Canal street fake purse market) and it's a much nicer experience. Stop in at Green Tea Cafe or Quickly if you're around for some bubble tea afterwords! Also Aji Ichiban for any-kind-of-preserved-fruit-you-can-think-of-and-random-Chinese(and some Japanese/Korean)-candies is also always fun.
I think these had red bean in them.
Sesame balls! Inside paste was almost peanut butter-y as one would expect from sesame paste.
These had lots of stuff in them. I think they had something to do with monks or buddha?
Some kind of gelatinous rice with kale. It was okay, the least interesting of the bunch though.
I think these were the 'treasure balls'. They were mostly potato with some filling in the middle. Think deep fried mashed potato croquets.
Some kind of dumpling?
