My choice of D food for ABC Wednesday is the dumpling. Taken from Wikipedia, "Dumplings are cooked balls of dough. They are based on flour, potatoes, bread or matzoh meal, and may include meat, fish, or sweets. They may be cooked by boiling, steaming, simmering, frying, or baking. They may have a filling, or there may be other ingredients mixed into the dough. Dumplings may be sweet, spicy or savoury. They can be eaten by themselves, in soups or stews, with gravy, or in any other way."
Fried Dumplings. This is fried pork dumpling, sister's choice when we ate at Panciteria Lido. Personally speaking, I love my dumplings steamed because that's how I have grown to know and eat it, but my sister prefers the fried ones because of its crunch. This one tasted really good, especially when dipped to the sweet and sour sauce.
Steamed Dumplings. Shrimp dumplings, which we had when we ate at Go! Fan restaurant. It was our first time to eat there, and seeing that their dumplings wasn't that expensive, we decided to have this part of our meal. The dough was chewy soft, and the mix of flavors inside go well with it. I loved this one because the shrimps are whole and not chopped. I also loved the way they created the dough, it must be difficult to make it look like a shell. :)
Whether fried or steamed, dumplings are very delicious snacks that I seriously wouldn't pass up.
