Qingdao Garden has closed its doors for renovation, leaving dumpling fanatics in the lurch.. Chowhounders have sniffed out a stand-in to make it to the November 3rd re-opening date: Chinatown’s Dumpling Cafe! Hounds note that unlike Qingdao’s thick-skinned dumplings these are thin wonton wrappers sealed with a twist in the style of Taiwanese soup dumplings (listed as mini steamed buns or mini juicy buns).
