help on chinese dumplings

chowbie | Oct 26, 2011 02:53 PM

Oh, please help. I used to go to a Chinese restaurant overseas and was taught very carefully (phonetically) how to pronounce the name of the dumplings I loved. The pronunciation was something like "Shwe (falling tone) xiao (low tone) zhe (short higher tone)".

The dumplings were not soup dumplings, and not like the fried crescent-shaped dumplings you get at Chinese restaurants in NY. They were small and round and fried on one side, and actually they came with their bottoms all stuck together from being arrayed on the pan in a row. They came with pork inside and were delicious, and I miss them so much. But I cannot figure out how to get them in NY. Help on pronunciation--and likely places to find them--would be much appreciated.
