Doughy dumpling pouches resemble bags of money, and legend has it that eating them can bring luck, but their history is a bit more complex. Chinese stuffed dumplings first appeared during the Han Dynasty, created by a man named Zhang Zhongjian, who returned to his village during the winter and found his neighbors suffered from frostbite, particularly around their ears, History.com says. Zhang combined mutton, chili, and healing herbs, then wrapped them in dough folded to look like little ears. While almost every cuisine offers some rendition of the dumpling — Polish piroshky, Brazilian empanadas, or fufu from Ghana, for example — it’s the Chinese versions that are the focus here. Here, a look at eight great places to get Chinese dumplings (and buns) in Las Vegas, with links to takeout and delivery options.
A number of Las Vegas restaurants have resumed dine-in service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in Las Vegas, please visit Nevada Health Response. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
