Mai Xiang Yuan

Chinatown in Montreal is clustered around De la Gauchetière Street. The neighborhood contains many Asian restaurants, food markets and convenience stores, as well as being home to many of Montreal’s East Asian community centers, such as the Montreal Chinese Hospital and the Montreal Chinese Community and Cultural Center. For excellent house-made pork, shrimp, leek and egg dumplings, head to Mai Xiang Yuan. The menu is all about Jiaozi - Chinese dumplings - with a selection of about 20 types, interchanging meats such as pork, lamb and beef, with leek, celery, mushroom, dried shrimp and egg. These plumped little purses, pleated and pinched - thick-skinned on the exterior and juicy on the inside - are made to order. The image of a wheat field adorns the business card at Mai Xiang Yuan, and the name refers to the sweet-smelling grain that predominates in the dough for dumplings, noodles and buns.
