Dumplings in Bangkok
I've been living in Bangkok (just north of Lumphini Park on Soi Langsuan) now for about a month and I've been craving dumplings. So far I have only found a small place called Gyo-Sa on Soi Ngam Duplee. This place had pretty great steamed and fried pork dumplings and I highly recommend it. But I am looking to try to eat in as many different places as possible and to try as many different styles and types of dumplings as possible. I'd especially like to find a good "soup" dumpling place. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Try a restaurant called Xian at Thonglo (opposite side of the street from the 'hip and happening strip', tucked on small lane behind Sukhumvit). Northern Chinese food so no soup dumplings - but good steamed and pan-fried jiaozi.
Caveat - haven't been in 2 yrs so can't guarantee it's still in business but it's been around a while and attracts Chinse expats so I'm pretty sure it will be.
since those type of dumplings aren't indigenous to bkk, there aren't many places you can find them. i hate to say it, but the best place for soup dumplings is at crystal jade in the basement of the erawan mall (note, they do not have them at the paragon mall location).
another good place for chinese dumplings (tho they don't have soup dumplings), is top menu on lang suan, right on your street! look for the red lanters in front of the otherwise unremarkable restaurant...
