Thanks for the plug. Makes more sense, though, reading the predecessor piece.

Are those fish dumplings just fish, no wrapper?

Jiaozi, i.e. similar to pork, lamb, etc. dumplings, but with a minced fish filling instead

That’s one of my favorite dishes at Great China in Berkeley. Lots of other people’s, too, apparently, since they used to run out all the time.

I think the only thing @chandavkl enjoys more than fish dumplings is finding quality chicken dumplings in a tried-and-true Chinese restaurant.

The best chicken dumplings are frozen at 99 Ranch Market. Runner up is the frozen Russian chicken pelmeni from Armenian markets like Super King.

Have you tried the chicken dumplings at Din Tai Fung?

Dumplings, not XLB or shao-mai.

No, I just get the fish dumplings. And fried rice.

That is a great article!
