SF Dish of the Month (April 2014) - Nominations/Voting
As usual, let's skip the nomination round, and just combine everything into a single discussion. Feel free to include a sales pitch with any nominations.
Click the recommend button to vote for existing nominees. You can change your mind up until the deadline. You can also nominate a new dish by replying to this message, in UPPER CASE, with its name.
Lots of suggestions last month got multiple votes, so they reappear as nominees below. Also, note this map showing an absence of southern hemisphere foods in past DOTM's (Margin of error=24,901 miles) https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=...
Voting will be open until Monday March 31st at 5 PM PST.

Chinese boiled dumplings (Jiaozi) - they are available in restaurants as well as several specialty shops devoted to/named after these regional snacks (Tian Jin Dumplings, Dumpling King, Dumpling Express, etc.). Not about dim sum in general or XLB, Momo, Gyoza (plenty of talk on those topics already) the simple meat/veg filled boiled dumpling deserves a thread of it's own.
hmmm... seven people voted for posole for April's DOTM, but not one posted a report. Reports don't need to stop when a month ends, but if you've been sitting on a report, now's a good time to submit!
This was the first DOTM that seems to be a more popular, or fresh, on weekends. Perhaps we should be cautious of weekend dishes in the future.
