Miami’s Best Dumplings
In honor of the recent National Dumpling Day, I started researching places for the best dumplings in town. At first, the idea was just for a list, not identifying which was the top place.And then I discovered Tanuki on Alton Road. OMG, hands down the very best dim sum in the Magic City. So here’s the scoop on Tanuki and a list of other good bets and variety — from Wagyu beef and chive and crab meat, to crispy chicken, mushroom and potato, shrimp, and edamame. Note that places where I’ve tried the dumplings are highlighted in blue; the others are recommendations from foodies in town with special credentials on Chinese food. Get ready to drool!
Dish: Tough choice — tom yum shrimp moneybag, chicken truffle siu mai, seafood dumpling and mushroom & potato
Description: The dumplings are super flavorful, fresh, perfect texture, and attractive presentation. There’s a dumpling sampler, 10 pieces, 5 different dumplings for $35 that comes with three different sauces. While you’re there, you may want to try the Tanuki burger — tuna with avocado, jalapeno and shiso on a rice cake bun and the to die for ribs. Actually, the entire menu is very appealing, lots of dishes I wanted to try like Peking duck and the duck ramen. Attractive, fun, casual decor as well.
