"Different" or unique Dumpling fillings?
Ok, I know the standards, pork with (fill in blank), fish (sole)...but does anyone know of SGV places that have dumpling fillings that are, for lack of a better term "out of the norm", less common, etc.?
I can start with the Hai Chang Dumplings at Beijing Duck House. Any other suggestions?
I've seen beef with caraway at JTYH. Anyone else? Bueller?
Likely you won't find this in the SGV, but in Japan you can get Bao filled with pizza sauce and a little cheese. (They are called "piza-man" since Bao are called "man" in Japanese.) There is also a curry version, "kari-man".
The "piza-man" is one of the most unique fillings I have experienced.
There's a Beijing style jiaozi restaurant in Hong Kong famous for tomato and egg dumplings/jiaozi
西紅柿雞蛋餃. As pedestrian as this is, it's not easy to get this right. Any place serves this in SGV?
The last one is fennel and pork, but nothing interesting there.
