Miami always needs more dumplings, which is why we’re so excited about HaoChi, because they are making some of the best dumplings in Miami right now. HaoChi is a pop-up that takes over Union Beer Store every Mon-Wed from 4-9pm, and the options include mushroom and leek; shrimp, cabbage and white miso; and pork, beef, and peanut gyoza. You should probably get all three versions - plus a bulgogi snow pea stir-fry. And obviously a beer too. They also have a wonderful Little Havana backyard patio where you can eat, complete with a wandering rooster.
