Fried Shrimp Dumplings at Chili and Chilly in Brooklyn

Chandavkl | Mar 30, 201204:43 PM

The great thing about Chinese food is that there is always something new under the sun. I was in Chili and Chilly, one of the restaurants on the outside of the Fei Long Food Court (and mentioned in passing in Dave Cook's report) when I saw "Fried Shrimp Dumplings" on the menu. Wow. I wondered what that might be. Visions of various kinds of dumplings danced in my head. However, when the waitress brought them out I was disappointed as they were just ordinary ha gow, white wrapper and all--until I bit into one and found that despite the white wrapper, it was a deep fried ha gow, tasty as anything. Has anybody seen this done anywhere else?

Also, to add to Dave's report, there is another restaurant on the exterior of the food court/supermarket building, Yuan Bao, which is a Fujianese noodle place like you find on East Broadway in Manhattan Chinatown. Same low prices--something like $2 for a large order of peanut butter noodles.
