Stuck in Vermont: Hong's Dumplings Celebrates Two Years on Pearl Street

Fall foliage is in full swing and while other people went leaf peeping, we went dumpling dipping at Hong's Chinese Dumplings in Burlington. For 17 years, Hong Yu ran a dumpling cart on Church Street which often attracted long lines of customers. Two years ago, a GoFundMe campaign raised more than $10,000 from more than 300 people to help Hong open a year-round storefront. We spent a Sunday afternoon at Hong's on Pearl Street eating dumplings and making friends with a steady stream of tourists and regulars. Though Hong Speaks English, Galen Ettlin from WCAX joined us and acted as a translator so we could also talk to Hong in her native Mandarin about how she learned to make dumplings in northeast China when she was younger.
