Every geographical area has its own unique form of tasty meat encased in dough. In Japan, there’s the potsticker; in Poland, there’s the pierogi; in Argentina, there’s the empanada; in Italy, there’s ravioli; and in Rockville, Maryland, there’s the authentic Northeast Chinese dumpling made from scratch, available at the recently opened East Dumpling House located on the outskirts of Rockville Town Center.
Sure, it’s a long way away from Harbin, China, where co-owner Hong Ren gleans her culinary influence from after spending her childhood there. But Ren and her chefs have gone above and beyond the call to create some of the most authentic and fresh takes on traditional Northeast Chinese street food that Rockville homeowners can find anywhere in the Western hemisphere. “We try to bring 100 percent original, authentic Chinese taste [to the table],” Ren told The Churchill Observer.
East Dumpling House has a few main specialties. One, as the name suggests, are their signature homemade dumplings. What separates their fare from other area locations is that rather than going to a food distributor, East Dumpling House makes their dumpling skins in-house using a one of Ren’s secret recipes. It’s not exactly fast food, as the dumplings are made to order, but that’s just part of the restaurant’s fresh-everything mantra.
Another delicacy that is unique to East Dumpling House, and that Rockville homeowners and residents are sure to love, are the restaurant’s Chinese kebabs. Known more as the type of street food delicacy one would find in the eclectic culinary scene of New York City, Chinese kebobs are marinated with special spices and then served to East Dumpling House customers fresh off the grill. And at under $2 a pop, they’re just one facet of the restaurant’s extremely wallet-easy offerings.
East Dumpling House also serves bubble tea, not to mention a variety of Northeast Chinese staples. Hungry Rockville foodies can visit the restaurant at its location at 12 N. Washington Ave.
