Niel and I have been trying new dumpling places recently. No special reason. They just caught our eye. One is on the way to work. The other is near Niel's office and the last I read about. We only really liked one out of the three places. The one by Niel's office. They make an interesting sandwich. The bread is scallion pancake and its stuffed with marinated pork. Really good! So below are some pics of our dumpling adventures. Heh heh.

Dumplings from the Dumpling Cafe. They were too cabbagy.










Dumplings from the Dumpling Man. It was such a cute store with a cute logo and multicolored dumplings. But we couldn't tell the dumplings apart. The pumpkin dessert dumpling smelled better then it tasted. Such a shame. It had such potential.















Vanessas Dumplings. The best out of the three.

Looks like fun. Alton Brown did a whole show on dumplings ... and how every culture has a dumpling-like thing in their culinary repitoire. It was quite interesting.

I swear, Ani . . . . this post made my stomach growl! Too funny! Now I want some dumplings!!!!!!!

You know I've never made any. Dumplings wasn't a food that was ever cooked by anyone in my family. I want to try making some now.

back at ya. We had some dumplings too but from our local chinese take out place. Nothing new. Heh heh.

I guess I should post a warning on my blog Yvett. You will leave hungry. LOL. I never made chinese dumplings either. The closest I came to dumplings were Armenian and pasta.

I love making my own sui gau dumplings with shrimp, ground pork, chives, chinese mushrooms etc. They are so awesome. But they are a heck of alot of work, so that is why I rarely make them.
