Those looking for an adventurous deal can head to a heated cubby at this Shanghainese spot in Flushing, which is offering a tri-colored assortment of soup dumplings at 50 percent of the normal $13 price. A festive red dumpling is filled with aged smoked ham, while a green one contains braised abalone, and the black one houses spike sea cucumber. You might also want to try one of the noodle soups or the fried rice cake, and as an extra bonus, diners get a lucky ox plush toy to celebrate lunar new year, which overlaps with Valentine’s Day this year.
