      Your price argument is of no importance obviously otherwise the topic of where to get the best dumplings wouldn't be so popular and you're just plain wrong about them not being as good as prosperity, these dumplings were excellent and I didn't need every other white person on food blogs to validate it.

        I hear they use a reduced Black Rice Vinegar in the "sauce" now. That's what caused the massive price increase.
