Elusive Dumpling at Flushing Mall- Help!

lisa | Nov 4, 2005 02:00 PM

All the Korean-chat yesterday had me pining for those great Chinese-Korean dumps at Flushing Mall and so that's where I was today at lunch time. First, I hit the Chengdu place downstairs for some chilled, spicy potato salad and stinky tofu. After, I finished with a Taiwanese shaved ice with lots of sweet beans and condensed milk and a takeout order of hand-pulled noodles with brisket for my elderly grandma who swears the stuff keeps her alive :) Yum.

Everytime I'm there I try to figure out which place sells something I've spotted repeatedly but never inquired about: a huge, SINGULAR dumpling or wonton in broth. I've seen people sitting around the fountain upstairs eating them in the past and I have repeatedly tried to figure out which stand has them to no avail. Today the cashier swore it was the Wonton Szechuan style from Chengdu. I specified ONE DUMPLING countless times and... I received 10 tiny wontons in broth-delicious but not it again!

This is becoming Holy Grail like for me.

Which place sells this?

Thanks,
lisa
