King Of Dumplings - Newark, CA


#1

Went to this place last week for lunch, I have driven past it many times, but never thought to try it because the signage is in Chinese characters, not English.
The menu has many types of dumplings as well as other entree plate options, and also “hand pulled” noodles.
We chose Pork dumplings with Napa cabbage, XLB, Onion pancake with egg and Hot & Sour soup.
I am dumpling enthusiast, but not an expert, I thought both versions were very good.The XLB (6 to an order), had nice soupiness and was not as strongly ginger flavored as some that I have had with a delicate wrapper. The boiled dumplings were also tasty and came 8 to an order.
The soup was full of tofu, pork and mushrooms, but was neither spicy nor sour.
The pancake was pretty bland and not as crispy on the outside as I would have liked, would not choose this again.
I will go back for the noodles and dumplings, the idea of dumpling noodle soup when the weather turns cooler is especially interesting.
They also have frozen items for home preparations.
Has anybody else tried this place? Favorite items?
