This casual, counter-service spot taps into Beijing dumpling culture. Pan-fried, steamed, or boiled, the steaming dumplings encase flavorful fillings. An aromatic blend of shiitake mushrooms and carrots makes the vegetarian dumplings a feast. Glutinous rice dumplings are round, adorable, and gluten-free. Sides of smashed cucumber salad; kale massaged with sesame oil; and zucchini and carrot like a naked slaw are almost spa food, while a bowl of sesame noodles are terrific and hearty, with sauce that slithers over house-made noodles. Milk teas come with dark, chewy house boba. Try matcha or golden milk chai, which is gentle and milky.
