Dumplings for Breakfast

What better breakfast is there, asks Poot, than a bowl of delicate dumplings in tart broth? Breakfast dumplings at Out the Door are pretty much the best you’ll find this side of Yonghe, the famed center of Chinese soy milk. Dumpling wrappers are made from rice flour–they’re translucent, thick and pleasingly chewy. Vegetarian steamed dumplings are also fantastic. Morton the Mousse recommends crispy duck, and rare beef salad.

Out the Door is actually the takeout window for the Slanted Door. While most love this pair of Vietnamese restaurants, Gary Soup finds both sterile and overpriced.
