While many The Upton at Rockville residents love Chinese dishes like sweet and sour pork, kung pao chicken, or General Tso’s chicken, there are a number of other Chinese staple dishes. In Shanghai, dumplings are a staple of just about every citizen’s diet, and they include steamed buns stuffed with meat, vegetables, and even served in soup. At China Bistro, a hidden gem tucked inside a strip mall in Rockville, you’ll get a chance to sample authentic Chinese dumplings right here in the USA.
Yelp reviewers rave about the beef celery and pork squash dumplings, but the highest praise is saved for “Mama’s Special” dumplings. The restaurant’s interior is casual and friendly, with ample seating for any type of group. Do be advised that China Bistro gets packed on weekend evenings, so if you’re not prepared to wait you might want to phone in a carry-out order. All of the menu items are also available for takeout if you’re looking for food to enjoy at home.
