Doozo may mean "welcome" in Japanese, but the Dumpling Diva, Julie Lu, wants the line in this food court to move quickly, so you'd better know what you want and have cash in hand when you get to the front of the line. The line moves fast, as do the delicious dumplings: healthy steamed veggie, chicken or pork, all accompanied with a spicy dipping sauce. One of Lu's secrets is using spinach instead of cabbage in the filling. Since this place offers takeout only, plan to enjoy your dumplings in the food court.
