Best North Dumpling Stall: Whats the dill-io?

This dumpling stall is located inside an herbal/dried food store type place. Don't be scared, walk right in and its on the left. We ordered 10 pork and fennel dumplings- they actually turned out to be pork and dill dumplings. Not sure if this was a mistake in translation or if they ran out of fennel. Either way this was a very different flavor combination, I don't think I have even seen dill used in Asian cuisine. Another little Flushing stall hawking very nicely made steamed dumplings, worth checking out.

  1. hahah dill-io thats clever. sweet pics

  2. Are you sure that was dill and not fennel fronds? When I've cooked fennel for Chinese friends, they're always surprised that we eat the bulb -- since Chinese cooking usually uses just the fronds. Just another possibility ;).
