I have discovered the wonders of Wang's Dumplings

Now I'm new to the dumpling game. I've only had the pork & green beans and love them. My question is, is there more than one way to enjoy them? Is steamed dipped in ginger sauce the best?

  1. honey, everything tastes delicious fried.

    1. Boiled or steamed are the classic preps. I dip mine in black vinegar from Chin Kiang but Shanxi vinegar makes for a good (a slightly more potent) alternative.

      You can also use a combination of panfrying/steaming them to make potstickers.

        Yeah both fried/steamed is tasty -- you can fry them in a pan, with a little sesame or other oil so they brown a bit and then throw in a handful of water and put a pot lid on it until the water steams off. Ponzu is kind of yummy for dumplings too.
        I've only eaten Wang's dumplings at the resto -- now I want some and wish I'd brought some home to my freezer. :)

      2. Mulan also has several combinations of dumplings. I've only tried the veggie ones, but I love 'em. They come steamed with a black vinegar sauce. But, you can also buy 50 frozen dumplings for around $10 if my memory serves me.

        1. How do they compare to those at Qingdao Garden on Mass Ave in Cambridge? I love their dumplings and you can get them frozen to go...

            I think the ones at Wang's are better than those at Qingdoa, but it's only a slight different. I like the thinness of the wrapper at Wang's, but the fillings are essentially identical.

          2. Never tried the ones at Qingdao Garden. I work literally across the street from Mulan, so it's my go-to place. Where is Qingdao's Garden?

              On Mass Ave in North Cambridge - about 1/2 mile from Arlington.

                Qingdao Garden is on 2382 Mass Ave., and I can vouch for the goodness of their dumplings.
