  • I'm quite a fan of this Northern Chinese style egg and chive dumpling from @huis_wontons99!🙌🏻🤤 The restaurant owners invited my family to come try a few of their specialties at their new-ish south Edmonton location (they also have a #SherwoodPark restaurant) and we really enjoyed our meal—so much so that my parents even went back on their own after our first visit!♥️ This small family business makes all of their dumplings and wontons in-house.They're real good.I also am partial to hot and sour soup (theirs is great) and I thought their Harbin Noodle Salad (only listed on their take-out or Chinese menu,so just ask for it!) was also amazing—light,flavourful and refreshing vermicelli,tofu,pork,cucumber,with a sesame vinegar dressing.I could eat it daily.Same with the dumplings!🤤 Thanks for inviting me to try your food,Hui's Wonton!Happy Saturday everyone!.....#yeg #yegfood #exploreedmonton #edmonton #dumplings #northernstyle #yegchinesefood #chinesefood #yegblog #yegblogger #yegfoodie #explorealberta #dumplinglife #asianfood #southedmonton
