Where can I find Chiu Chow dumplings?

asiansupper Jul 12, 2010 06:26 PM

When I lived in SF "chiu chow" dumplings (peanuts, vegetables, unidentifiable meat sometimes, translucent skin) seemed standard at most dim sum places. I can't seem to find them at the dim sum places in NYC though. Any ideas?

    Red Egg has them. They're called "fun gaw" on the menu.

        Oddly enough, plump dumpling ("peanut dumpling") on 2nd Ave. and 11st. It's cheap, but beware, they often overcharge, even if it's just pennies, and say "it's the tax..."

          when i saw the headline, i thought you meant those Chiu Chow dumplings that use egg white instead of flour for the wrappers...

              chiu chow food is difficult to find in NY, but as duckie said red egg has them, i think alot of the dim sum places do if u look for them (although there are many types of chiu chow dumplings)

              the only chiu chow restaurants are new chao chow and bo ky in the city and they really aren't full chiu chow places, they are good for their noodle soups and they both have very good chili oil that i believe they make in house

                  Not as good as dim sum in California IMO or Chinatown Brasserie or Flushing, but pretty good for Manhattan. I've stuck with the more traditional items for dim sum.
