BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Dumpling Lady

  • Food


Zhang Qian churns out pork, chicken, shrimp, and veggie dumplings like a parade float tossing candy as it rolls by, rapidly and well-received. There’s almost always a line at her food truck, The Dumpling Lady, but it won’t take long for a foil container of 10 dumplings to appear—and then disappear moments later, leaving behind a gentle sting on your tongue from the heat. Don’t miss the noodles, too.
