Dumpling House Restaurant
Picking out a restaurant in Chinatown can be a little daunting sometimes. There's always an overload of options and you want to make sure you leave satisfied without a large abyss in your wallet. Thankfully I came across a nice little place called the Dumpling House Restaurant .
Being Korean I've eaten my fair share of dumplings, but I must say I've never come across dumplings like these. $5.99 got me a plate of Pan-Fried Pork & Chive Dumplings, which come in a group of 12 and are loosely bound together by a golden fried net that crumples apart at the touch of a chopstick. Simply put, they were absolutely delicious. The texture was just right, not too cripsy and not too flimsy. Dip it in the hot sauce provided and thats some serious flava. Judging from the framed pictures of former PM Paul Martin on the wall across from me, I think he'd agree.
In addition to the dumplings my company and I ordered the Stir-Fried Noodle Shanghai Style ($5.99) and a bowl of Hot & Sour Soup ($2.59) The soup was quite good but I must say the noodles stood out to my taste buds even more. They were thinner than your average Shanghai noodle filled with bits of cabbage and pork. The next time I'm craving dumplings, I'l know where to go.
