Hmm, many empty and nearly empty dishes piled up on this table and people are still stuffing their faces - they must be at Luscious Dumpling!
It appears to be de rigueur that I post an entry for Luscious Dumpling once a month (see "Restaurants Reviewed" on your right.) Well, the time has come for me to memoralize my last meal there. I met nine other dumpling fanatics on a glorious Sat morn not too long ago (ok, actually it was nearly a month ago but I was waiting for the last LD entry to be archived) and we ate so much we had to waddle out of the restaurant (a few hearty foodies made it to Fosselman's afterwards.)
Below, the best dumplings of the day: fried dumplings stuffed with napa cabbage, pork, and sole - divoon!
Below, some beautiful looking bok choy served with oyster sauce - it was as good as it looks.
Below, the ever popular shredded pork and szechuan pickle soup noodles.
Below, my favorite soup: stewed pork soup noodles(note the gobs of stewed pork belly in this soup! The pork was very lean on this day but it was still meltingly tender and flavorful.)
Below, steamed dumplings filled with cabbage, pork, and shrimp.
Below, the beef tendon noodle soup with hot sour sauce (the broth is served on the side). I turned many people onto this dish that day - when the meal was over there was nothing left in the bowl.
