If you’re a dumpling maven living in the DMV, chances are very high that you’ve hit this cavernous dim sum den in Seven Corners. More solid places may have emerged since its heyday, but crowds still turn up on weekends vying for a spot beyond the fish tanks full of sea creatures in the entryway. If you’re lucky, you might see a wedding reception happening in the back while you chow down on pork buns, shrimp dumplings and fresh, local crabs in season.
