I just got back from Taiwan where I think I ate at Ding Tai Fung three or four times. Their guo tie are amazing and they have this crispy film along the bottom that connects them, any idea how they do that?
'Din Tai Fung' on Serious Eats
I love Asian dumplings of all types, but after having more than my fair share of the fried type, I'm looking to go less oily (and more healthy) in trying some steamed and boiled dumplings in the Seattle area. Here are my 10 favorites.
What's the longest you've ever waited in line for a dumpling?

Can these soup-filled tiny little buns live up to their reputation?
