Help - Dumpling craving!
So I've been eating various and assorted frozen dumplings but now I want the real thing, made by someone's hands, probably in a piping hot kitchen. I know there are lots of Chinese restaurants in Boston and I'm sure they each do their own thing but which ones are good and what makes them so? Thanks for the help!

I went to "Gourmet Dumpling House" tonight for my second visit in 2 weeks. It's pretty good:
-Soup dumplings with pork -- very good. Slightly less delicate wrappers than the ones at Taiwan Cafe, which was a plus for us. Only 1 broke/spilled on its way to our plates. Quite good.
-Taiwanese style pan fried dumplings. These were excellent. I think pork and leek, heavy on the leek. Longer and and with thinner skins than the pan-fried ravioli.
-Stir fried green beans with dried shrimp. Very tasty.
Tonight, I went on my own before the Pats game. I got the Taiwanese dumplings again, and a bowl of Taiwan Noodle Soup. Both were great.
The only downside tonight was that they tried to enforce a $20 minimum to keep me from using my Visa. I told him they weren't allowed to do minimums (it violates their agreement with the credit card companies) but I think the language barrier made that a difficult conversation, and ultimately I paid cash.
