  1. I’ve eaten what feels thousands of these in Shanghai, China and I was thought to bite the top of and suck the soup out. I have also never seen that kind of dipping sauce over there either. Yours looks amazing though and I am totally on board with it! I always had a pinch bowl with the thinly julienned ginger and small pitcher of black vinegar that I poured in to the bowl. No matter what, your dumplings look amazing and I would like to place a delivery order for a few thousand please!
