We are SO happy to welcome back Asian Farmer Dumpling. His delicious, doughy pockets full of meat and fresh veggies have been sorely missed. We anticipate a run on the dumplings so get to the market early to score yours. They are a godsend for the those busy weeknights when you open your fridge at 6:30pm asking "what's for dinner?!"
