Dumplings is an international food. There are different cultures around the world who eat different types of dumplings. Here at Treehouse Society, we love trying different types of dumplings around our coworking space. This is a list of our favorite dumpling places.
1. Pushkin - This is located at 380 Bush Street inside International Food Court. By the way, International Food Court has had a grand opening sign for the last 10 years and is and underground place next to L&L Hawaiian BBQ. This is an amazing place for pelmeni, which are dumplings from Russia. Our favorite things on the menu are chicken pelmeni, beef pirojki, and squash vareniki. If it is cold outside, borsh is great here! If you are going to this place for lunch, you better get here early as the line gets long at noon.
2. Hon's Wun Tun House - This is located at 648 Kearny Street, which is less than 500 feet away from our space. This is really convenient for us to have lunch there. The chef cooking near the door always get our lunch cooked and to our table within 5 minutes. Our favorite on the menu is of course wun-tun & noodle in soup. Oh, if you want your bowl of noodle soup to be healthier, add some veggies for 50 cents. If you are a big eater, get a side of wun-tun to fill you up!
3. Bund Shanghai - This is located at 640 Jackson Street. Their Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings) are awesome! Well, be prepared to bite into a dumpling of soup, which means the soup will spill as soon as you bite into it. We normally put it into a spoon to play it safe. For optimal experience, dip your dumpling into the vinegar and ginger they give you.
4. House of Xian Dumpling - This is located on 925 Kearny Street. Our favorite items on the menu here are boiled cabbage and pork dumpling, boiled chives and shrimp dumpling, and boiled radish and beef dumpling. Save yourself some money and don't get Xiao Long Bao here.
5. City View Restaurant - This is a block away from us at 662 Commercial Street. This is a great place if you have a lot of time to kill. Not only is the line long, it takes a long time for the dim sum and dumplings to circulate the entire restaurant. Their char siu bao (bbq pork bun) is amazing. We also really love their shrimp dumpling. We normally get 2 cages of them during lunch time.
Come cowork with us and have lunch breaks at our favorite dumpling places. It will be fun, we promise!
