The chef from Wu Chow set out on her own to open a dim sum spot, so we were immediately on board in the name of Shanghai soup dumplings. And though you should probably order a plate of them before you even sit down, once you do finally look up from your plate, you’ll notice that, from the colorful walls to the large mural, the place is incredibly charming. The other dishes on the menu, like the scallion pancakes with curry dip and the chicken taro egg rolls, are also worth ordering. And though you might not regularly have dumplings for brunch, you definitely should here.
