Dumpling Generation is a Northeastern Chinese restaurant specializing in handmade dumplings and noodles. Northeast China has historically produced much of the commercial food grains and economic crops for all of China, meaning that its people traditionally eat many flour-based foods like dumplings and noodles. Dumpling Generation’s owners are originally from the Liaoning province of the People’s Republic of China, and have previously owned the popular China Town restaurant in Anchorage, Alaska, known for its authentic Chinese menu. Dumpling Generation makes each dumpling from scratch, and each dumpling is hand-wrapped by chefs in the kitchen upon being ordered. The dough of the noodles and dumplings is also made from scratch and pressed through a machine, making every bowl in the restaurant as fresh as possible. In addition, the restaurant even offers free samples for visitors to try three side dishes from the menu.

Evviva Woodfired Pizza
Using an authentic apple wood-fired oven, Evviva Woodfired Pizza specializes in wood-fired Neapolitan pizza using the freshest organic and all-natural ingredients such as organic extra virgin olive oil, organic flour, all-natural Fior de Latte mozzarella, imported San Marzano tomatoes from the Campagnia region of Italy, imported 24-month-cured Prosciutto de Parma, and organic/all-natural/nitrate-free cured meats from Zoe’s Charcuterie. The restaurant is committed to the creation of authentic Neapolitan pizzas, making dough only from finely ground flour, yeast, and water, and shaping it by hand without the use of a rolling pin. The pizza is cooked on the floor of the wood-burning oven rather than in a pan, and the final product is soft, elastic, and easy to fold in two. Its authenticity is characterized by its raised golden crust, soft to the touch, with the red of the tomato visible through the white spots of mozzarella. Evviva also serves caesar and caprese salads, assorted flavors of organic gelato, house-made tiramisu, and assorted draft beer and wine.
