Bing’s Dumplings specializes in noodles and dumplings and is located in the same Ranch 99 shopping center as Chongqing Xiao Mian. The owner is from Shandong and a chef is from Shanghai.
You can hear a chef thumping away as he hand-pulls noodles. They’re half a centimeter wide, long and have a lot of chewy bounce. I found the base of their Lanzhou style soup to be lacking in intensity. I enjoyed, and much preferred, their version of Zha Jiang mian, which was topped with a brown fermented bean, meat and tofu sauce and served with cucumbers and blanched (yes! I hate raw) bean sprouts.
Xiao Long bao are very good. Well proportioned and full of soup. So large I wish I hadn’t popped an entire one in my mouth.
Pot stickers are the long, open ended variety. I’m not familiar with this style, so don’t have a basis of comparison. My impression was that the pork wasn’t especially juicy, and there’s a lot of dough.
