Hello Austin Chowhounds!
Can anyone tell me if/where to get steamed pork buns, aka soup dumplings, aka soup INSIDE a dumpling, not dumplings resting in soup?
I'm talking about the kind you'd find in Chinatown in NY at Joe's Shanghai. There's a picture you can scroll over at the bottom of this post to see what they look like.
1 person has mentioned "soup dumplings" on the Chinatown DimSum page, but it's not clear if they're talking about the same dumpling! This dumpling I'm looking for has soup and meat contained within the dumpling wrapper. You usually eat it off a big chinese soup spoon.
I asked a Chinatown Downtown employee if they had soup dumplings and it's clear that the girl working there had never heard of this type of dumpling. That makes me wonder whether or not the Mopac Chinatown would have it.
Thanks for your time and attention!
