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.
