NJ Dining: Best Dumplings

Best Dumplings
16 Humphrey Street, Englewood NJ

Englewood has been undergoing something of a transformation lately, with a lot of new businesses sprouting up among the new condominiums as well as a result of renewal as a result of the demolition of older buildings off the main drag on Palisades Avenue. One such new business that caught my eye recently is Best Dumplings, a commercial Korean Mandoo manufacturer (Which used to be based out of the industrial part of town and was previously known as Mandoo, Inc.) that now has a retail outlet.

For those not familiar with Mandoo, they are Korean dumplings, similar to  Japanese Gyoza or Chinese Jiaozi, although in terms of wrapper thinness they are more like Gyoza. Like Gyoza, they can be deep fried, pan fried, or steamed. Most Japanese gyoza is limited to pork and scallion filling, but Korean Mandoo are quite varied, which include mixed vegetables with bean thread noodles, pork, beef, chicken and shrimp, and of course Kimchi. If you like Gyoza, chances are you’ll love Mandoo.

Best Dumpling, Englewood NJ by you.
