Oakland Chinatown Dumplings from Shan Dong

Finally got around to trying March 2002 recommendation from Melane, Charlie T and Lisa T for Shan Dong's dumplings. Excellent. Knew I'd like them when I saw the woman in the window rolling out dough with a little wooden rolling pin. I'll never go back to Costco's or Trader Joe's. Talked them up too much in the office and ended up schleppng 12 dozen back to coworkers a few days ago. They're $4.25 a dozen for Shan Dong (mixture), $4.50 for pork w/ leeks, pork w/ cabbage, beef, vegetarian, chicken. Make sure you ask for frozen and get the dipping sauce (we doctor it with a little Tuong Ot Toi chili garlic sauce but it's a good base). They also deliver 5-9 pm w/ minimum $15 order within radius of 1 1/2 miles so those of us who work in downtown Oakland are in luck.
(And stop by Shepherd b. Goode's recommended Pho Hoa Lao II across the street--333 10th Street--for huge portions of pho at amazing prices--bathtub size is $5.90)
