Taste: Soup Dumplings

Because we can’t live on Moleskine alone:


“The dumplings arrive to the table in piping hot bamboo steamers. Like a beggar’s purse, each plump dumpling contains a little pork meatball surrounded by a meaty broth. Tongs are provided to lift the dumplings off the steamer and onto a soup spoon. To prevent burning one’s mouth and to savor the dumpling, the preferred method of consumption is to bite off a little piece of the doughy wrapper, suck out the broth with a slurp, and then polish off the rest.”
