Do you know where to find vegetarian soup dumplings? Years ago there were a few Shanghai restaurants that had them, but no more.

    Canteen 82 on Columbus between 82 & 83.
    I enjoy their vegetarian soup dumplings very much. I've never had "real" ones so I can't compare. But they look similar, have some broth inside, and are served with spoons just like the "real" ones. The filling is greens.

      I walked past Plump Dumpling on St. Mark's the other day and noticed the menu had something called a "surprise" dumpling - 1 vegetarian and 1 non-vegetarian version. The description (which the online menu lacks) made it sound like a soup dumpling. I haven't tried it yet, but next time I'm in the neighborhood I definitely plan to. If you get there first, please report back.

        None of the other dumplings on the menu are soup dumplings (which to purists, aren't even dumplings, making the term soup dumpling rather unfortunate), so I suspect not.

          You are correct, only the "surprise" dumpling is a soup dumpling. And I swear to you, I was not hallucinating. Here are some posts in support of my claim (the last one refers to the vegan soup dumpling):
