On our way to Green Chile Pies, we got stuck in some traffic. So, er, we decided to drive 30 blocks out of our way and go have dumplings at Shanghai Dumpling King.
Yeah. That was not very disciplined of us. However, our meal cost $22 for a family of four. It was so delicious! We had the Shanghai dumplings, because we’re that original. (It’s a dumpling that has a soup-y liquid center when you bite into it. Sounds weird, tastes great.)
We also ordered the green onion pancakes. Also tasty, and a hit with the youngest.
My favorite was the pot stickers, which had the liquid-y soup-y center of the Shanghai dumplings, but were pan-fried and crispy too. They were very flavorful. Both the dumplings and the pot stickers were hard to eat with chopsticks, so I used the big soup spoon they offered us.
You don’t go to the King expecting ambience. It is a serious hole in the wall.
Next, pie: we obviously decided to sample the sweet pies.
I got the Banana Creme:
Darcy ordered the Key Lime Blueberry Pie:
What’s better than pie? Not much.
