Dumpling Daughter Weston

Foodwise Weston is a food wasteland, but now Dumpling Daughter has opened in a small shopping mall. It's run by the daughter of Sally Ling of the long-gone Sally Ling's restaurant on the waterfront.

It's a bright room, you order at the counter, get a number, and the food is brought out to you. Yes, #10 was me. Lots of wasted space in front of the counter and I moved my table away from the wall to get more elbow room. Of course, the line formed in front of where I was sitting. They got busy, and there was a fair amount of takeout, good for them. Food seems to come out as it's ready, I got my ramen way before the dumplings arrived.

Pan Seared Pork and Napa Cabbage dumplings ($6) was six plump and juicy dumplings perfectly fried, and they were bursting with the tasty filling, and the skins were nice and tender. The price is on par with what you pay in other restaurants.

Three Day Pork Ramen ($12). NOT the instant kind!!!!!! Classic pork broth, fresh ramen noodles, pork belly, soft egg, bamboo, red pickled ginger, kombu seaweed, scallions. Not exactly cheap but the broth was nice but could have been fattier, and there were three big slices of belly in there. The noodles were perfectly cooked, delivered fresh from Brooklyn, NY. Nice to have an accessible place where you can get a decent bowl of ramen.

This gave me an excuse to visit my former mechanics at the Boston Sportscar just up the street. They are still doing Ferraris, and you can see Michael the mechanic sitting in the middle. He has been with them since they opened. Really nice guys doing very nice work.
