Another dumpling restaurant, second within months, set to open in the area.

I guess Poughkeepsie loves their dumplings! I for one am a big fan of dumplings. Whenever I order my Chinese food, for as long back as I can remember, fried dumplings are always part of the order. Sometimes steamed, depending on my mood.

This past January, we got word of a new hot spot for dumplings coming to Poughkeepsie. Palace Dumplings is the original spot in the Lafayette Plaza on Route 9 in Wappingers Falls, NY that's been serving the area for over a decade 5-star reviews. They opened a new Palace Dumpling at Hudson Heritage Plaza on Rt 9 in Poughkeepsie in February.
