Good Chinese in Pinellas Co?

Agree heartily. Carts are rolling only on Sunday, I believe, although you can order individual items throughout the week.

Can't speak for the rest of FL, but in the Tampa area if you're looking for authentic Mexican, avoid places gringos usually eat and instead look where those from Mexico are eating. And that means inside Mexican grocery stores more often that not there will be a taqueria, as well as small hole in the wall taquerias found in strip plazas.

In Tampa:
Acapulco Mexican Grocery at 1001 N Macdill.

Across the bay in North Pinellas, there are great choices:

Tarpon Springs:
Cielito Lindo Taqueria on East Tarpon

La Cabana Del Tio on Drew St
El Chicanito on Gulf to Bay
Marcellas on Gulf to Bay
Lakeview Grill on Lakeview Rd
Encanto Mexicano on Drew St

Casa Tina (great food, the only upscale place on the list, go when you have plenty of time as the service is often slow)

Pinellas Park:
SeƱor Taco on Park Blvd in Pinellas Park

Looking for soup dumplings in Tampa

Either would be great! And sorry for my slow reply, I had a family member sent to the hospital at the time of your post. Totally forgot to look for any replies after that.

Looking for soup dumplings in Tampa

Has anyone ever seen soup dumplings in Tampa?

Not the steam/steamed dumplings which are fairly common, but the soup dumplings that seem to be popular in the northeast and west coast.

Here's a Wiki on them:

Thanks in advance!
