Vegetarian Dumplings in San Gabriel?

ANori | Jan 9, 2013 12:56 AM

I'm sorry to admit that I'm a vegetarian when asking for dumplings in San Gabriel.... There are lots and lots of posts about dumplings in the SGV, but not too much that details dumplings without pork. I'm not a super strict vegetarian (don't mind broth) and technically I'm really a pescatarian as I will eat fish. But no chicken or pork or beef. Friends took me to Din Tai Fung -- and there was enough choice there for me to really, really enjoy it. But at another, unnamed restaurant, my request for dumplings without pork created quite a stir. And at yet another, "vegetarian dumplings" still meant pork. I realize I may be at odds with the Chinese commitment to pork - but short of the all-veggie restauarants (which most posters here don't seem too excited about) -- can you point me to another place where I might be able to eat at least one or two vegetarian dumplings or buns? Thanks in advance!
