This Bridgeport Chinese spot has a very long menu with everything from sautéed quail to orange chicken, but the reason we come here is for the Northern dumplings. Each order comes with eight dumplings filled with a balanced blend of shrimp, pork, and plenty of broth. These are similar to soup dumplings except they have a thicker, chewier wrapper and look like if your usual XLBs had a massive growth spurt. They're served hot and fresh in a large wooden basket with wafts of steam billowing out, serving as a warning signal that you should let these cool down first if you want to be able to taste anything after your first bite.
