XIAO LONG BAO
Originally from Shanghai, these soup-filled pork dumplings are exactly what the doctor ordered on a cold day. The soup’s piping hot, so you’ll want to proceed with caution.
Pan-fried pot stickers, or guo tie, are too easy to eat. Filled with ground meat and vegetables and wrapped in a thinly rolled piece of dough, you’ll easily eat more than one.
You’ll find wontons served deep fried, in chili oil, in a clear broth, or in a bowl of noodle soup. Filled with ground pork and shrimp, or a mix of whole shrimp and shrimp paste, these are little clouds of perfection.
AVAILABLE DURING DIM SUM HOURS ONLY (TRADITIONALLY BETWEEN 10 AM TO 2 PM)
These shrimp and prawn dumplings enveloped in a delicate tapioca starch wrapper are best enjoyed steamed and hot—and dipped in either soy sauce, chili oil, or a chili sauce for an extra kick.
Best enjoyed in one bite, these steamed pork dumplings are not only beautiful, but delicious. Topped with salmon roe or sometimes a whole prawn, we suggest getting two baskets to share.
Craving something sweet? These fried Chinese pastries are made of rice flour and filled with a sweet paste— usually black sesame, lotus, red bean, or black bean. Enjoy responsibly: it’s hard to eat just one.
HAM SUI GOK
These Cantonese egg-sized pork croquettes have a tender-crisp crust enveloping a delicious minced pork core. Tip: get the waiter to cut these in half to share.
CHIU CHOW FUN GOR
From the Chaozhou district of China, Chiu Chow Fun Gor contain the most fillings of any dumpling. You’ll find chopped peanuts, garlic, chives, ground pork, dried shrimp, radish, and shiitake mushrooms wrapped in a wheat flour wrapper. Trust us—these are delicious.
