Who has the best steamed dumplings in town?
I love dumplings. My current goal is to track down the best in town. Not those wimpy little dim sum dumplings - which are tasty but if I'm in a restaurant I don't want the frozen ones I could make myself. I'm searching for the ones about the size of buns.
Any ideas? Suggestions? Should I just learn to make them myself?
sorry to sound like a broken record, but the most distinctive dumplings i've had in austin are the Zhong Dumplings at Asia Cafe. Quite yummy, and larger than average. Never seen dumplings the size of buns. Spoon some of the hot chile oil (dig into the muck at the bottom and utilize it too...it contains the odd sichuan peppercorn). Don't think you'll be disappointed but, YMMV.
