MN - Momo and the like

Dave | Nov 4, 200309:25 AM     8

Whenever I'm in Manhattan, one of my first stops is over in Chinatown for the famous soup dumplings. I've always lamented that I haven't found anything similar here in MN (dried out, sticky, bland, thin-skinned Leeann Chin pot stickers need not apply).

It's not quite the same, but there's a good alternative that's been right under my nose all along -- the momo at Everest on Grand. The wrapper was nice and thick but NOT sticky, the meat (pork and turkey mix, aptly called "meat" on the menu) was nicely spiced, and they were juicy enough inside to slightly resemble the soup dumpling filling. And the side of mildly-spicy cilantro puree on the side was excellent.

I'm wondering if any of you MN hounds are familiar with the NYC soup dumpling and if you've found anything, a la the momo, here in town that can tide me over until my next trip to New York. In the meantime, I would gladly recommend the momo at Everest, even if you're not a soup dumpling addict.
