Mackerel Dumplings At Mr. Dumpling in San Diego

Haven't seen any mention of Mr. Dumpling on this board, and other Internet comment (much of which concerns the non-dumpling portion of the menu) seems to be so-so. But if you go to a restaurant called Mr. Dumpling, it seems that the focus should be on the dumplings, and the menu there has a couple of eye-catching dumpling items. First of all is the mackerel dumpling, though I can't say if it's really mackerel or perhaps sole or cod. Fish dumplings are relatively common in L.A. area Chinese dumpling restaurants, but rare to non-existent in other Chinese population centers such as New York or San Francisco. While not as good as Qingdao Bread Food or Kingburg Kitchen in the San Gabriel Valley, the mackerel dumpling at Mr. Dumpling is quite good, certainly better than the fish dumplings at the highly regarded Dumpling 10053 in the SGV. Another interesting dumpling is the pork dumpling with embedded corn and pine nuts. Don't think I've seen this anywhere, and both the skin and filling are quite good. Mr. Dumpling is oddly located on a mostly industrial street, at 7250B Convoy Court. You can see it from the back of the 99 Ranch Market parking lot. (That's how I found it.)
