Can You Identify this Dumpling? - Dim Sum Question

MB from Boston | Oct 22, 2003 10:53 AM

Okay, so I know that dim sum discussion on this board gets old, old, old, but..

My first dim sum experience in the city was at Harmony Palace (or is it Garden?) on Mott just North of Canal. Soon after I embarked on dim sum pilgrimages each time I visited. The bus unloads and I'm off! To Ping's, Jing Fong, Golden Unicorn (why!?) and some small joints that I just can't recall but never did I see the green veggie dumplings that I fell in love with at Harmony. Last weekend I decided to revisit the original scene of the crime and there they were! They're in bright green skins and the veggie filling seems like a lot of mushrooms, sprouts, etc. Can anyone identify them for me? Can I get them anywhere else?

It seems to me that Harmony might just be my "comfort food" dim sum spot - some of the dumplings were a little over-cooked/gooey, but they've got my dreamy green dumplings, the pork short ribs were pretty darn good and the ground beef/pork fried spring rolls that are so delightfully naughty - remind me of the pork filled fried wontons from polynesian/chinese restaurants in the 70's/80's.
