Chinese food is my eternal love. I lived in China for quite a few years, and the only thing that I never get tired of is the absolutely amazing food. In fact as time passes, I get even more attached to Chinese food. Honestly, now in United States, the thing I miss most about China aren’t my friends ( sorry guys :)), the people, or even the beautiful language. It’s the incredible food.
One of the food I miss the most is Chinese dumplings. Although it might not be such a fancy name, but believe me, once you’ve tried it, it becomes part of your life. I’m not even joking :), it’s that good. I once lived in Shanghai China. There was this restaurant right across where I lived, and they had the best dumplings in the world. they mainly sell breakfast, kind of like Jim’s.
The dumplings there, as I’ve said, is simply marvelous. They are usually served in small bamboo steamers, in eights. About half a palm in size, and delicious. I usually don’t eat that much, but when it comes to dumplings, I can finish three steamers of them ( people usually eat like three or four dumplings per person). When you bite down on the hot dumpling, the rich and warm juice inside just spreads through your mouth. Along with the meat wrap by the thin, tight coating of the dumpling, soft and tempting. I’m telling you, the first bite of dumpling in the morning is legitimately, the best feeling on earth.
So if you, by any chance, get to come to China. Please, please try the Chinese steamed dumplings. You most likely will not regret it. 😉
