While they have a reasonably well-developed menu at Jack Yan's (also known as Shandong Dumpling) in the Golden Shopping Mall, all the star power comes from their boiled to order Shandong-style dumplings. They're small and fat, with substantial, slightly chewy skins that belie tasty fillings. For extra authenticity points, dip them into black vinegar doctored to your tastes rather than just soy sauce.
