Dumplings are done well at Auntie Chang's, but little else about this full-service, strip-center Chinese restaurant near Montrose warrants a stop. The spinach, pork, chicken, beef and shrimp versions are steamed, while the pork version can also be pan-fried. A sampler platter offers two each of four types; top them with your choice of tabletop chili, ginger-soy and jalapeño sauces.
