Battle of the Dishes

Battle of the Dumplings: Moira vs. Nine05

Let me guess: when you're looking for comfort food, Asian cuisine doesn't exactly pop to the top of the list. While yummy, sushi lacks the warm, tummy-nurturing sensation that comes with mac n' cheese or Aunt Sally's meatloaf. But there are a few Asian dishes that easily calm frazzled nerves after a hard day. My favorite? Dumplings.

For this week's Chow Bella, I sampled two very different dumplings in hopes that one would imbue the stomach and the spirit with zen.
