Chive dumplings

Are there any dumpling places that make chive dumplings without meat in them ? Maybe I haven't looked hard enough.

    I think david sprague's right on the chive and egg jobbies, but for the most part, many Chinese Buddhist and Taoist sects that emphasize vegetarianism also prohibit the eating of onions, garlic, and their relatives, making vegetarian chive dumplings an item with a limited commercial appeal. I've had to suffer cooking for my dear mother this way for years. (Just kidding Mom, it's always a pleasure.)

      Some dim sum joints in Chinatown have them. Chive dumplings in dim sum houses are not uncommon. They even sell them frozen at the asian market.

        Your best bet might be to call Vegetarian Dim Sum House on Pell St. 212-577-7176

        They don't have it on their online menu but a lot of their dumplings aren't listed there either.

          Some of the dumpling places in flushing sell egg and chive dumplings -- there's one on main street near 40th avenue --although they're often only available frozen in bulk. i don't believe i've seen them offered at any of the five-for-a-buck places in manhattan's chinatown....
