Hi! I'm Claire an avid traveler and Digital Nomad. At 34 I sold all my worldly possessions that wouldn’t fit into 3 boxes or in my backpack and hit the road.
Lan Zhou Handmade Noodle and Dumpling is one of the slightly more expensive places for dumplings in Chinatown. It is less of a 'hole in the wall' joint, and more of a place to go for a nicer evening meal with friends.
Again, you have to be prepared to not judge a place by the outside when in search of good food in Chinatown. The most important thing to watch out for the A rating... if it doesn't have an A rating find somewhere else.
The best things about Lan Zhou is the dumpling sauce! Seriously they need to start bottling it up and selling it it's that good. Here you can get 8 dumplings for $4!
The dumplings were really good, but it was the sauce that took them from good to amazing. Take a look at my video below to see the full dumpling adventure.
