I wish I had pictures from this great little place in Toronto’s Chinatown. I went there for an afternoon snack and it was so good I went back for breakfast, well they open at 11 a.m., so more of a brunch. Despite this spot’s name, it has a pretty big menu of other dishes.
The Dumplings. The dumplings are pan fried in a cast-iron fry pan and at the last minute the cook adds a mixture of flour and water to the pan. This batter crisps up and joins all the dumplings together into a single, sheet of crispy goodness. They have pork and chives or leeks, shrimp dumplings and I think also some vegetable dumplings.
The Dipping Sauce. Bottles of soy and vinegar and a tubs of hot chili paste that you mix together to taste.
Location. 328 Spadina Avenue. It is on the east side of Spadina at the corner of Glenbaille Pl.
