A favorite among numerous local chefs, this tiny bare-bones Chinatown eatery earns raves for its house-made dumplings. Steamed or pan-fried, the doughy purses are filled with chicken and cabbage, pork and cabbage, and fish and shrimp, to name a few of the numerous options. The Szechuan-leaning menu also tantalizes with dishes such as chilled spicy pork ears and spicy salt and pepper shrimp.

Best dim sum in Boston! Gourmet Dumpling House is a great place to eat with friends. For about $20 per person you can share several delicious dishes, ranging from fresh dumplings, lo mein, meats, and other dishes. (The pea shoots with garlic sauce are a must try!) This restaurant is small, but it's a poorly kept secret so visiting the restaurant during non-traditional meal times (middle of the afternoon, late night) is best for fast seating. Can't wait to go back!
