Chive dumplings at Luscious Dumplings

Opened in 2001 by husband and wife Alam and Grace Lam, the cozy—just eight tables—dumpling and noodle soup restaurant lives up to its name serving high quality dumplings. Before you have a chance to choose from the variety of jiaozi, every table receives a complimentary dish of peanuts, celery and firm tofu tossed in chili oil. Along with choosing boiled, steamed or pan-fried dumplings, guests can opt for the dumpling and noodle soup combo (just $7), which comes with a half-portion of dumplings and a sizeable noodle soup.

The name, Luscious Dumpling, has always been irresistable to me. It was on my list for a long time. Somehow the hours and the lines made it somewhat difficult to try. Upon finally trying the dumplings, which come steamed or pan fried, I agree they are solid. 

The only issues I had with them were that the steamed ones get served on a plate sitting in a pool of water. The pan fried ones come a bit chewy and greasy vs. crispy. The skins are on the thick side, if that is what you prefer. Texture is strong, and so is the filling taste. Service is good and fast. Prices are reasonable.
