RICKSHAW DUMPLING: Pleasantly surprised by this place!

Pot Belly | Dec 3, 2005 03:00 PM

Finally checked this place out and actually liked it! Had heard really bad reviews of it, so was wary.

First off, the place is bigger than I thought: VERY clean with high ceilings (giving a nice feeling of being in a loft)

The girls working up in the front were a bit spacey, but they were friendly at the area where you pick up your food. Open kitchen -- another aspect I wasn't expecting.

I had the fried chicken dumplings with Thai dipping sauce. 5 of them were enough to fill me up for lunch. And they weren't overly greasy or heavy like they can be in some Chinese places.

I'm coming back for the duck dumplings with hoisin sauce...anyone had them there before?

Also, how are their noodle soups?

All in all, a nice neighborhood find...sure beats bad pizza, fast food or Chipotle (yuck!).
