Chinatown Dumpling Hunt- Suggestions?

BenSkoch | Sep 29, 2003 03:35 PM

Hello-

My friend and I are planning to make a first foray into Chinatown this weekend, and the plan is to try as many different dumplings at as many different places as possible. So- if anyone has a suggestion of some choice starting points here, I would be very appreciative. The more info, the better (i.e. addresses, steamed/fried/other, veggie/pork/seafood, exceptional sauces, etc.), since we're going completely blind and I've had questionable experiences w/Chicago chinese thus far.

Thanks much,
Ben

(Since I feel like I should in turn contribute something here, I have to suggest the buffet at Mitch and Janina's Polish Delicatessen around Western and Thomas- across from the Empty Bottle- the mushroom soup is the best I've ever had, and this is coming from someone w/2 Czech grandmothers. Don't know if this place is on the radar here or not.)
