Things aren’t simple at Wokano - there are more dumpling choices than coupons attached to a CVS receipt. Even though you’ll want to try them all, the seafood crystal dumpling is the one you should order. With a paper-thin skin that clings to the filling like your t-shirt does after you get stuck in the rain, you’ll see the color of the crab, shrimp, and vegetables peeking through the skin. These soft and chewy bite dumplings are both savory and sweet, and you get a blend of mild onion-y spice in each bite.
