I finally got to Mother's Dumplings yesterday. I was tired and hungry and I was right in the neighbourhood. I would have loved to try a wider variety or dishes but I was alone so I only ordered the boiled dumplings with pork and bok choy and da lu noodles. They were both delicious and perfect for a chilly evening. I'll be back. (I took home enough leftovers for my husband to have a very substantial lunch today.)
BUT I have a teensy concern. All of a sudden this tiny little place is getting all kinds of attention. I'm sure it's great for their business, but I can't imagine how they will manage to keep up the quality of their food, now that they've been discovered. On the back of their order form there's a spot where you can indicate how you heard about the place - one of the choices was Chowhound. Are we destroying the place? I realize this is partly a selfish concern, but is Chowhound attention the kiss of death to a charming little hole in the wall?
