Reader: Stay away from Lao Wang Noodle House...I beg you!

One woman's favorite dumpling is a dish someone else dumps on. In 100 Favorite Dishes, Lori Midson recently raved about the xiao long bao at Lao Wang Noodle House. Those wrappers are too thick, sniffs one critic.

Listen to him, pleads another reader:

Yes this Polygrip person is right and not a twit. Don't listen to Lori. The dumplings are bad, not amazing. I don't want them all the time. Stay away. Far away. It's not my favorite thing to eat in Denver. Lori, no more talkey! Too crowded.

Lao Wang doesn't just make one of our favorite dishes, it's one of the very best Chinese restaurants in town. In honor of the Chinese new year, we also just served up "Denver's ten best Chinese restaurants." Read it here.

Ah, to get fresh, handmade dumplings and potstickers in the Denver area...

Hahahaha, that comment of the day is great.  "No more talkey" is so cute and funny!  I guess that's what they thought when they cast Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Lighthearted and fun racism is the best kind!

These dumplings are delicious, as are the potstickers at Lao Wang. Use your noodle and go there!

Those dumplings come from the freezer aisle of the local grocer.

You can find them at H-Mart in Aurora, but they're packaged as "soup pork buns" (Shanghai brand) or something other than xiao long bao.  And they're remarkably uniform, just like in the photo above.

Snort.
