After taking 45 minutes to decide on your outfit, choose a commuting podcast, and find a parking spot to squeeze into, you might not want to make another decision about what to eat. Paul’s Pel’meni makes things easy, thanks to its simple menu with just two choices: potato or ground beef dumplings. Yes, you’ve got a couple choices for toppings—there’s sweet chili sauce, curry powder, butter, and vinegar—but let us make it even easier: Add them all, and get extra sour cream. The restaurant has moved around over the years, and its current home just off State Street has plenty of seating for a casual lunch or dinner. There's also a late-night scene that's mostly college students sharing dumplings and trying to prolong their inevitable hangover.
