We had a severe disappointment Sunday morning at A&J Annandale when we discovered that the pan-fried pork dumplings were crossed off the menu. They were the highlight of our meal there a few weeks earlier, easily the best pan-fried dumplings I've had in years.
We asked our waitress and I believe the explanation was that they took too long to prepare.
An article in the window at the nearby Maria's outlet indicated that the pork dumplings were the #1 seller in Rockville. That does make their disappearance a bit odd.
