Eddie Mao is a true dumpling aficionado, and no stranger to the tastiest dumplings in New York City. He owns Mao’s Bao, the best place in NYC to get sheng jian bao, or pan-fried juicy pork buns, among other colorful and creative fillings. His love for pocket foods is somehow still greater than the copious amount of dumplings we ate with on our dumpling crawl through Flushing, Queens.
The World In A Pocket is devoted to exploring the world through the lens of a dumpling. From mandu to empanadas, spanakopita to gyoza, pierogis to pop tarts, this is our love letter to pockets worldwide and the stories they tell.
