Dumpling King is in a strip center with just enough dinge to make it interesting, with aromas on loan from the cigar shop next door. It's very, very inexpensive, the service is friendly, and in traditional dive fashion, their signature dish is right there in the name. They serve a wide variety of dumplings and pot stickers, with chicken, shrimp, beef, pork, and various combinations thereof. They also serve familiar Taiwanese noodle soups, onion pancakes and egg rolls. There are lots of vegetarian, kosher and halal options, and they're known for their generous wine pours.You can also get uncooked dumplings to take home and cook yourself, if you think you can do it better. While you're in the neighborhood, why not stop by the other shops in the strip mall for cigars, tattoos and kinky lingerie?
