Dumpling King

When it comes to dumplings and China town, my friend M always knows where to go.  This time she took me to Dumpling King, an unassuming joint on Dundas Street a few blocks East of Spadina.  They do a couple of things different here.  Their pan-fried dumplings have a unique shape and the skin is a bit thicker than most dumplings I’ve had.  Rather than the pinched closing that is typical in dumplings, these are just folded over and somehow it holds the filling in.  Although the dumplings were good, and so reasonably priced, I would come back just for the cucumber dish.  This was M’s recommendation and I was definitely skeptic, cold spicy cucumber, how can that be good?  Well, it was delicious!  So refreshing with a bit of spice!  I’ll be going back.
