coconut2 picked up a taste for steamed jiaozi, sometimes sold in the States as pot stickers, while living in Beijing. Most of the versions here, though, tend to be less fresh and greasier, with too much pork and not enough greens.
Your best shot for getting great jiaozi might be at Kingdom of Dumpling, says K K. The steamed/boiled lamb dumplings and soup dumplings are both very good, agrees yimster. The owners also run a “dumpling and mien guan (flour-based products) operation” called Asian American Foods.
