Lunch With Beth--House of Xian Dumpling Restaurant

Beth had checked the resto House of Xian Dumpling Restaurant out herself and deemed it blogworthy. Housemade noodles and both Xian and Shanghai dumplings. What more could we ask for? And we've been craving Shanghai dumplings ever since Happy Dumplings closed their brick-and-mortar to concentrate on the food truck circuit.
The place setting is simple. This food does not need embellishment.
We tried the pork dumplings in both styles and liked them both so much we couldn't pick a favorite. The bok choy with oyster sauce was delivered to our table by mistake, but we ate it--and paid for it.

Noodles and dumplings were made in the dining room by the in-house noodle maker. We definitely recommend this restaurant. Hand-pulled noodles are a treat!


If you know of any other Chinatown restaurants with hand-pulled noodles, please let us know in the comments.
