Mr. C-f-a has been pining for these dumplings called suan la chow show served in a Cambridge Chinese restaurant called Mary Chung's. Apparently the dish consists of dumplings in a spicy broth with beansprouts. A chowhound search for the dish brought up many links to Mary Chungs, and one forlorn and unanswered poster in 2002 who also wanted to find this dish in NYC. I won't attend Red Sox games with him, but I would be willing to partake in this Boston nostalgia with him if anyone can help us find it.
Any ideas in the 5 boroughs? Thanks in advance
