Dough Zone Dumpling House was established in Seattle in 2014. The motivation behind the creation of Dough Zone was a desire to bring traditional homemade Chinese comfort food into a modern setting. Dough Zone opened its first store in Bellevue, WA and since then, Dough Zone has expanded into a chain with seven stores throughout the greater Seattle area. And two of the branch stores in Northern California are now open in San Mateo & Cupertino. We specialize in authentic Chinese buns like Q-Bao (Pan Fried Buns), Xiao Long Bao (Soup Dumplings), and a variety of distinct, regional Chinese noodles.
Determined to bring a quality dining experience, Dough Zone only utilizes the freshest ingredients. We pride ourselves on our friendly service and affordable pricing.
XIAO LONG BAO
In order to create the soupy filling, our chefs proudly use a traditional Chinese recipe. By adding aspic to moist, seasoned Berkshire-Duroc pork and crab meat, steaming the bun will liquefy it into a broth and fill the traditional steamed bun with juiciness and savory goodness. These were traditionally steamed inside a little bamboo basket, thus the name Xiao (small) Long (basket) Bao (bun) was born.
One of our signature dishes - Q-Bao originate from the famous Shanghai Sheng Jian Bao (Pan Fried Buns). Our tasty Q-Bao are made and prepared with distinctive, fresh ingredients in a traditional way of cooking. It is filled with moist Berkshire-Duroc pork, a secret aspic recipe and wrapped with dough. After a 2 step cooking process of first steaming and then pan frying the bottom, the buns turn out perfectly soft on the top, crispy and crunchy on the bottom.
Szechuan's specialty "Dan Dan Noodle" is one of our signature noodles. Dough Zone imparted a spicy secret recipe sauce into our Dan Dan Noodle. Its incredible crispy, spicy & numbing peppercorns bring inspired flavors on another level. Our freshly made noodles are served in a secret savory spicy sauce, then topped with fresh green onion & preserved mustard greens. All you need to do is to mix everything together and enjoy the dish!
