    For the nobody concerned: Dumpling 混沌 Hun dun is a homophone in chinese for the primordial chaos, or force, from which all existence springs and continues, a Taoist concept of how and why our universe came in to being and continues to manifest itself in infinite variations, so please don't confuse it with a simple BUN of DOUGH. Just kidding that's all bullshit and doesn't matter.

    Interesting. No wonder there is no universal string theory of what is a dumpling!

    Me thinks cream puffs are more of a pastry and falls in the domain of donuteuring. That being said, having a cream puff is like having a wonton (which apparently translates to swallowing clouds) and is also highly encouraged on a dumpling ride!

    Who knew Germany is a hotbed of dumplings! Seems Washington Post is in the dumplings should have filling camp so I'm leaning with LeprosyStudyGroup that if it has filling and looks like one one of the other dumplings then yes.

    Dumpling ride # 1 complete: steamed shrimp dumplings at Pike Kitchen in Rockville.



    I'm not going to lie, I've had fresher shrimp dumplings. But it was worth the ride to go check out Pike Kitchen, the third and newest of the Asian food halls in the D.C. area. And also to check out the bike infrastructure on Rockville Pike -- which appears to consist entirely of "bike may take full lane" signs, on a six-lane arterial with a 40mph speed limit. Thanks but no thanks.

    Sorry there's no way to post a reasonably sized photo from my phone.
    I got a set of Shumai from Saigon Saigon (left) and a set of Crystal Shrimp dumplings from Tasteful Delight (right) and snarfed some of em at the ice skating rink between the restaurants because duh. Left get 5/10 stars and right get 3/10 stars.

    BTW David do we really have to put the hashtag in our ride title to get points? I'm not a fan of that.

    Coffee and "hunan dumplings" for breakfast at the bezos landing whole foods . Of many things that are good or even preferable to eat cold, these are not one of them. 2/10 stars.

    If David has asked the powers that be to track rides like I do for #FS2019coffeeride, then yes. Otherwise, you won't show up on the leaderboard (whenever one is created ... there isn't one now). And it would mean David would have to manually track everyone's rides. But it's David's game, so he gets to decide.

    Or it could be done via posting to the forum, with entrants keeping track of how many dumplings rides they have done, they way beerneuring works.
