Dumpling Zone will make you consider writing a show-stopping musical number dedicated to dumplings. Inside this casual Forest Hill spot—it’s so small you could traverse the entire space in just ten steps—you’ll find a range of dreamy versions that are steamed, boiled, and pan-fried. Go for the pan-fried pork bao, which are like puffy balloons full of pork-y soup, or the crab and pork xiao long bao highlighting delicate, chewy wrappers. Really, there’s no going wrong in their well-executed dumpling department, but know that the garlicky cucumber appetizer is also worth a trip here.
