Lao Peng You offers some of Chicago’s most unusual Chinese dumplings.
| Garrett Sweet/Eater Chicago

A perfect dumpling is a treasure, a comforting treat to savor during trying times such as these. Fortunately for Chicago, the city is home to a sizable community of dumpling experts who are still filling stomachs and hearts across the city with siu mai, potstickers, and xiao long bao via pickup and delivery orders during Illinois’s pandemic-induced ban on dine-in service. Hungry dumpling fans take note: some versions travel better than others, and some may want to take structure into account before placing an order. Those who are really itching for a delicate soup dumpling may want to opt for a frozen version to reheat at home to prevent any broth explosions or seepage en-route. Hours and menu items are subject to change, so call ahead or check social media for the newest details.
