Zhong-style dumplings at Gu's Dumplings

Available at Gu's Dumplings !
These palm-sized half-moons come bathed in a mercifully mild chili sauce, like a less-concentrated version of the chili oil found on the table at most Chinese restaurants. Each delicate dumpling skin contains a meatball-esque center of savory pork filling that bursts with natural juiciness. The only downside? The glistening pockets are so slippery they can be tricky to eat with chopsticks. Don’t let utensil woes get between you and the prize; there’s no shame in using a fork. Or your fingers. 6 pieces: $6/12 pieces: $10.
