One of the best restaurants in Chinatown, China Mama balances a deep selection with fair prices and expert presentation. The diverse menu of Chinese cuisine has been streamlined a bit in recent years, but that's not a bad thing, since the best dishes (like the Dry Pepper Chicken, Hot and Sour Soup, and wontons in pepper sauce) all remain in place. But let's talk about dumplings. China Mama served steamed Xiao Long Bao pork dumplings long before the soup dumpling trend took off in Vegas and puts a cool twist on the concept with the big mouth roll, which is almost like a pork and onion sandwich.
