I finally got over to Qingdao Garden and bought some dumplings. They were out of spinach (my first choice), so I ended up getting pork and string bean. This is the first time I've had their dumplings, so I can't say whether or not they've gone downhill, but I thought they were fantastic! Great flavor and so easy to make. I am very short on time this semester and trying not to end up eating crackers for dinner, so these will be a big help. Next time I'm going to try to buy a bag of pork and leek and a bag of spinach.
Does anyone know where I could find the Japanese Kikkoman? (Not the American stuff you can buy at the grocery store.) I had looked at Super 88 in Allston last fall, but didn't see it. Also checked the market in Porter Exchange. I'm not sure where else to look. Somewhere in Somerville/Cambridge would be best, but if I have to venture downtown, I might be able to do that sometime in the next few weeks.
