My dad was in town recently for a quick visit, and he was in the mood for dumplings – so I took him to check out Great Wow, a newly-opened dumpling-and-noodles (“flour” foods) restaurant that received positive reviews from Kirk and Kirbie.
The place wasn’t busy when we visited for a late-ish dinner on a Thursday night. Their menu lists a variety of noodles, dumplings, and stir-fried dishes – we just chose a few to sample.
I really liked these condiment containers placed at every table with soy sauce, vinegar, white pepper, and chili oil. For some reason, the metallic look really appealed to me.

A friend had recommended the xiao long bao (soup dumplings) here, and I was in the mood to try them. The skin on these was a tad thick, but the filling was good, and there was plenty of soup.
