Dumpling Empire in south city

oohlala | Oct 10, 201109:53 PM

Found out about this new joint (open about ~3 months) after giving up waiting at the Tofu House in downtown South San Fran. The place has extensive options for dumplings. I personally think it's better than most dumpling joints in the city.

From the appetizer menu, the kitchen has pretty good idea what they're good at. Pork elbow, marinated beef, cilantro tofu/bean stick, tofu with green onion are all well seasoned. However, I wouldn't describe it as 'orgasmic' since the restaurant is restricted using the average supermarket grade products (e.g. tofu isn't silky, tofu/bean stick lacks the fresh flavor, etc). However, for the price you pay, it's definitely a steal!

Anyway, the place isn't famous for XLB, so for those of who that are looking for a good XLB experience, you're in the wrong place! The owners are from ShanDong province and they're known for their dumpling & noodle. Stick to these and you shall not disappoint :)
