Most Chowhounds really enjoy Hui Tou Xiang's dumpling-centric menu. Almost everybody loves hui tou pork dumplings, which are nice and crisp on the flat side, oniontears says, with a juicy filling featuring good pork flavor. The xiao long bao (soup dumplings) are also excellent, even if oniontears thinks the thin top skin is a tad tough.
Leek pancakes are full of leeks and cellophane noodles, oniontears says. Other reliable orders are crab xiao long bao, pan-fried leek and egg dumplings, and fish dumplings—but only get these last ones if you like Chinese leeks, PandanExpress warns. The pork hock is also truly excellent, dreamcast18 says.
