Chinese dumplings (Wok Show)


After reading Yvonne's entry on Wok Show I found myself consumed by thoughts of those Chinese dumplings, until there was nothing for it but to trot up Greifenhagener Straße that very evening. The dumplings were exquisite, though at first I was daunted by the twenty crescents filled with pork, shrimp and vegetables. I faltered at twelve, then fifteen, and finally managed all but one, which I left perched at the edge of the platter like an offering to the gods. (Do try to get a half-portion if you're visiting alone; the standard platter of 40 would be impossible to manage.)

My visit was too spontaneous to manage a photo, but you can catch a peek here, or just go yourself, as soon as humanly possible.

Those dumplings, we call them jiaozi and the Japanese call them gyoza, are the perfect antidotes to blustery winter days.

Happy chinese New Year!!!! ;-) Perfect timing!

The family's teenage son, who works as the restaurant's waiter, is very sweet -- keep an eye out for his impressive sketchbook, which can often be seen on the counter.
