We have no idea why it took until 2016 for soup dumplings to reach Austin. Or why they made their debut on the bottom floor of a slick downtown bank building. But here we are, eating mostly-authentic Chinese food in a floor-to-ceiling windowed room, and loving every minute of it. The food here is excellent, and if you’re in the mood to sample a lot of things you should be here on Sundays for dim sum service.
