Dough Zone Dishes
Dough Zone specializes in authentic Chinese cuisine such as Q Bao (Pan Fried Buns), Xiao Long Bao (Soup Dumplings), Potstickers and a variety of distinct, regional Chinese noodles. Determined to bring a quality dining experience, Dough Zone only utilizes the freshest ingredients. Dough Zone offers an extensive yet affordable dining experience with a selection of expertly crafted dumplings, freshly made noodles, high-quality meats, local vegetables and more.
Xiao Long Bao – Dough Zone’s soup dumplings come in 3 traditional flavors and feature premium ingredients – Berkshire-Duroc pork, “no antibiotics ever” chicken & Berkshire-Duroc pork with crab meat. Our chefs proudly use a secret traditional recipe in order to create the savory soupy filling inside these signature xiao long bao. By adding aspic to seasoned moist Berkshire-Duroc pork, crab meat, and steaming, the jelly will liquefy into a broth and fill the traditional steamed bun with juiciness and savory goodness. These were traditionally steamed inside a little bamboo basket, thus the name Xiao (small) Long (basket) Bao (bun) was born.
Q Bao – One of our signature dishes – Q-Bao originates from the famous Shanghai Sheng Jian Bao (Pan Fried Buns) but the main difference is in the dough. Our tasty Q-Bao is filled with Berkshire-Duroc pork, a secret recipe aspic and wrapped with a fluffier type of dough. Although the Q-bao is fluffy, the dough is able to hold the soupy filling to create an explosion of flavor with every bite. After a 2-step cooking process of first steaming and then pan frying the bottom, the buns turn out perfectly soft on the top and crispy on the bottom.
Noodles – Szechuan’s specialty “Dan Dan Noodle” is one of our signature noodles. Dough Zone imparted a spicy secret recipe sauce into our Dan Dan Noodle. Its incredible crispy, spicy & numbing peppercorns bring inspired flavors to another level. A Chinese classic “Beef stew noodle soup” is a customer favorite that is made with braised beef brisket.
Pot Stickers – Our potstickers are first pan steamed to create a soft texture and a juicy filling. As the water evaporates, the bottom becomes golden crispy and a beautiful iconic lattice skirt develops. The skirt adds extra crispiness that is both a pleasure to your palate and eyes. 4 different varieties of pot stickers are available to choose from which includes chicken, vegetable, beef, and pork & shrimp!
Appetizers and Vegetables – Dough Zone features a wide variety of appetizers and vegetable dishes that pair perfectly well with noodles and dumplings. The sweet & sour cucumber is a beautifully arranged salad coated with a house-made sweet and sour dressing. Our traditional braised pig ear is packed with immense flavor and sliced thinly for an enjoyable textural experience.
