Kuai Dumplings & Soups

Fast-food dumpling places are a hot trend in other cities – and here comes Kuai Dumplings & Soups to bring dallas up to speed. Kuai is what they call a quick-service restaurant concept, serving dumplings, spring rolls, and soups for not-a-lot-of money. You can eat for under $10 (which has become the new $5), and nothing’s fried, everything’s steamed. Opened last wk in downtown’s underground, across from Sonny Bryan’s and not far from the similarly-avant-garde Noodle Nexus, Kuai's focus for now is lunch. it's by 3 entrepreneurial guys in their early 30s who went to UT and, inspired by dumpling chains in NY, Houston, Oregon, & Virginia, spent the last 2 yrs piecing together this deal. expansion seems inevitable; surely they'll head north?

Who are you calling Shirley?

While I am on the subject, I think it is important to remind everyone that tomorrow is election day. As you enter your polling place, remember that John Kerry and the democracks have sullied the memory of everyone whom the President (and maybe the Vice President) has sent to foreign countries to protect us from the scourge of terrorism. If you don't vote for Republicans, don't bother to vote at all.

And don't forget...I am armed, and I know where you live. Oh, and Republicans promise you a dumpling in every pot.

Isn't there a train stop near this place? Might be worth a trip to downtown. For me. You have a great dumpling place near you in Richardson.

Ms.Ery, the people of NYCE would be ever so grateful to get your professional opinion of this place. It does appear to be right by the St. Paul stop off the DART rail. I get a "3.5 star" kind of vibe... the owners said they limit the number of dumpling options to streamline the order/delivery process.

Dick Cheney looks kind of like a dumpling. Though, unlike the asian version, he's full of shit.

Why Twisted, that's the best thing I've read on NYCE this year!

Who wants an extra dumpling?
