Gourmet Dumpling House, Chinatown, Boston

Located between Harrison and Oxford streets, this tiny Chinese restaurant is extremely popular now that it is on the Ritz Carlton’s suggested Restaurants. (Also included on this list is Franklin Cafe, O Ya etc). Getting a table at peak dining times is near impossible. We’ve been by here several times and have left for the following reasons- the hostess seated people who came after we did since they had a larger group or the wait time was longer than we were told, i.e. we were told 45 minutes, but waited much longer than that. The service is slow and inconsistent, but the food is good.

Pork and Leek Pan-fried Dumplings

Deliciously moist and crunchy on the bottom. The soy dipping sauce is perfectly tangy from the addition of vinegar.

Beef and Vegetables Pan-fried Yellow Noodles
Sweet and Sour Flounder is like General Gau’s chicken only lighter on the batter but with flounder slices.

Beef Chow fun dry style was another favorite dish made of long wide flat rice noodles with soy sauce, bean sprouts, green onions and beef.

On the way home we stopped and grabbed two desserts at Bao Bao Bakery to eat on the walk home.
