Look at these dumplings while I'm gone

Serious Eats just posted this piece on the best fried dumplings in Chinatown.

Look at them. Then post about what you like in a dumpling. Where do you get the best dumplings around here? 

Do you prefer your dumplings fried (YES!!) or steamed (NEVER!!)?* 

I have a lunch interview (very excited about it), so please enjoy the dumplings. And the Girl Scout Cookies.

Went to Shanghai this summer - the fry dumplings there are out of this world.

Richard, you are crazy! I only ever go for steamed dumplings, they're the best! Pork is best for the filling, but I've had some great chicken ones from Thai Orient in Owings Mills.

I only like steamed dumplings if they are Wasabi steamed dumplings!!

OoOoOoOoO! Wasabi FAVORITE!!

WOW! $1 for 5 dumpling? $1.25 on the outside?

We're getting robbed here in MD. The going price for substandard dumplings at most Chinese restaurants around here is anywhere from 300%-500% higher.
