A few minutes’ walk away from Main Street, White Bear’s outwardly small, low-maintenance appearance is easily underestimated by passersby. However, they would be sadly mistaken in casting this hole in the wall aside so hastily, because White Bear happens to serve the best dumplings in the neighborhood. The verdant greens and delicately cooked meat come in light, feathery skins along with a dressing of chili oil, roasted chilies and pickled vegetables. Aside from the fabulous dumplings, White Bear’s extensive menu contains numerous classic Chinese dishes, including sesame rice balls, spicy wontons, fried bean curds, fried noodles, pickled cabbage, and fried rice cakes, all offered at outrageously low prices.
