I have tried so many dumplings in my life, and one of my favorite weekend things is to have Dim Sum or Yum Cha. Nowadays, I tend to stay away from fried dumplings and opt for the healthier steamed version but I was recently at a dinner with friends at XO Taste and they ordered the Vegetable & Seafood dumplings ($4.95 for 6) so I tried one. I was so shocked at just how good it was, that I had a second, and a week later I took my friend there who was visiting from Spain just to try these dumplings. I would describe them as only lightly fried, so the important crunch is there without the oily residue, and the filling is very generous, bursting with veggies and shrimp.
