I went to Stanton Social last week where I ordered the "French Onion Soup Dumplings." If you're not familiar with this restaurant, you get dumplings that have a crust of gruyere chese & a crouton on toothpicks. When you pop the dumpling in your mouth, you get a burst of French onion soup. I've never had these before. They were a total revelation to me. A week later, I am still thinking about them.
After doing a search on Chowhound, I've found some other places where I can get Shanghai style soup dumplings, but I'm wondering if anyone knows how to make them. I'd love to try this at home.
