On January 1 – New Years Day – most of us made a resolution to get healthy, exercise, and eat right. On February 8 – the Chinese New Year celebration at the Dumpling Café in Boston’s Chinatown – I made a rigorous resolution to get a healthy portion of dumplings on my plate, exercise my right to eat copious amounts of dumplings, and eat said dumplings right away so I could go back for additional dumplings. What can I say? When the Dumpling Café is doing the dumpling making, I take resolutions very seriously.
The Dumpling Café is a small, unassuming Taiwanese-style restaurant in the heart of Boston’s Chinatown, but one should not assume that the tiny kitchen cannot produce big flavors. Famous for their xiao long bao – a Shanghai style broth-filled dumpling – I learned right away their popularity is for good reason.
