Slate has a good piece on how the Chinese dumpling as served in American restaraunts must be improved immediately. During my year in Xi'an I ate a lot of dumplings, the best being served in hot chili soup or fried Hui style, and while you can find really good dumplings, you do have to look. Here in Portland, I would recommend Mandarin House, which is on SE Ankeny and 1st. It really doesn't look like much, but their dumplings are a delight, as is most of their food.
