Lai Lai Dumpling House Restaurant Review: Lai Lai Dumpling House isn't much to look at. The tiny Bellaire Boulevard location is situated in a strip center in the heart of the Asian shopping district. Yet the shortcomings in the ambience can easily be overlooked because of the hefty portions of cheap eats that Lai Lai has delivered to hungry Houstonians through the years. The dumplings are big, moist, thick-skinned pockets with flavorful fillings. With eleven varieties to choose from---pan-fried, boiled or steamed---go ahead and try them all to get the most out of the experience. We also recommend the soups and noodle dishes. Don't overlook the other offerings like the chicken Lai Lai with broccoli, or the crispy shrimp with ginger and scallions. If you're eating in, a nice touch is to try the do-it-yourself instructions on the menu and concoct your own dumpling sauce from the assortment of condiments on your table.
