@Masonsdumplings boasts being not your average dumpling shop on their website and they are on point.

The Food & Drink
The highlight is the dumplings- Many kinds. Boiled, steamed soup and pan fried. They are delicious. They fly out of the kitchen as they are ready and our group really tore through them. We loved each kind in their own ways, prepared to perfection and really tasty with the traditional chili oil sauce and soy.
Soup Dumplings were a great start, with Crab and Pork as well as traditional Pork, both options contained a wonderful broth and were delicate to the touch- They Rival Star Kitchen and might be the best in Denver.

Pan fried pork and chicken dumplings deliver with a crunchy crust and flavorful filling that will have you pushing your tummy to the limit. We really enjoyed the pan fried chive pockets (bottom right). They had an empanada like vibe and were a nice change from the meat filling of the other dumplings.
We started with an array of veggies from the menu: Wood Ear mushrooms, Seaweed salad in chili and garlic sauce and small bok choy with oyster sauce. The 4 of us were concerned we ordered too much, but it was the perfect way to start our evening and we cleared the plates.
