Jeng Chi (DFW)

I'm having dinner tomorrow night with friends at Jeng Chi (the dumpling house) in Richardson. Just wanted to check and see if any chowhounds had suggestions/tips for ordering.

  1. The boiled dumplings are good, and unusual to find in this area. Soups are better than average, too. The mustard greens/stalks with pork was good when I had it. The only thing I have had that wasn't good was their sesame balls (the one with sweet bean filling) which were soaking with oil.

    1. If you like spicy food I would recommend the ma po tofu and the boiled sliced beef (tender beef and napa cabbage topped with cilantro in a very spicy soup sauce). Both are Szechuan specialties that Jeng Chi does well.

        1. Second the green onion pancake.

          I usually get the boiled dumplings and pot stickers. And like Kirk said, stay away from their sesame balls.

          1. Please report back and tell us what you thought of the place.
