[DFW] In Search of Good Pan-Fried Dumplings
- donnaaries Oct 20, 2006 04:35 PM
Are there any places in the area to get good pan-fried dumplings (potstickers)? I've had the ones at Jeng Chi, but I think their steamed are better than pan-fried.
I like the beef pan-fried dumplings at Lai Lai Dumpling House in Houston, savory tender filling with a slightly chewy wrapper. Anything like that in DFW?
Using Lai Lai is a benchmark might be setting the bar too high ;)
Their dumplings are much, much better than Jeng Chi's, or for that matter, pretty much any place I've been to in TX. I think a comparable place would probably be in Houston.
Jeng Chi is just great for the budget and to fill the craving, especially since I have no clue where else around Richardson/Plano/Garland to get dumplings. There might be a place in that area near the Hong Kong Market in Garland, but that's likely to be predominantly Vietnamese.
Also interesting to mention that Lai Lai isn't *that* much more expensive compared to Jeng Chi, but the food is in a totally different dimension.
