    it is remotely “similar” to balsamic vinegar, she obviously doesn’t know what she is talking about. just cause they are both dark…

    Well, your way is incorrect. But then, everybody has their ways of enjoyment. Normally, the dumpling skin is bit on a spoon, allowing the juice to come out and to be sucked. Then ginger and vinegar is added to be consumed whole

    the way I eat it is take a tiny bite on the skin(wrap, lol), then sip in all the soup and then eat the rest in one bite. or, if the soup is not very hot, i’ll jst eat it all in one bite lol
