Hi-Does anyone know if one can get pork soup dumplings in downtown Philly, the same written about by Frank Bruni and Adam Roberts in the NYC area? Thanks, Mary

    There is a little hole in the wall on 9th street between Market and Arch that Craig Laban wrote about a little bit ago that he raves about their soup dumplings. Can't recall the name of the place, but it is under the gallery/parking overpass

        Address is 59 N 11th street (NOT 9th)

        Their soup dumplings are great.

      Dim Sum Garden is great if not deceptive. No dim sum served and they have the standard pictures of fried chicken wings you find in Chinese take-outs with the bullet proof glass. However, their dumplings, especially the pork and nappa, and pork and giner are quite delicious.

        Thank you all so much. I found Laban's review of the place-I'm having a friend coming into town and, after reading Adam Robert's and Bruni's description of them (at two different restaurants there, I was salivating . . .
