Located in the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago, just south of the Loop, Ed’s Potsticker House offers an authentic selection of Northern Chinese delicacies, including Dim Sum items that we have never seen in the MidWest. The menu is extensive with a wide range of items. It provides something for everyone. We ordered the House Special Potstickers, Onion Cakes and the Shrimp and Chive Dumplings, which were all mouth-watering good. For our main dish, we selected the Eggplant with Spicy Garlic sauce, Green Beans, Salt and Pepper Shrimp and the Shredded Pork with Bamboo shoots and mushrooms. The food was excellent.
The restaurant is decorated in a somewhat 60’s style, bordering on kitsch. The food was extremely tasty, nicely prepared, with large portions that will satisfy the hungry.
Introduced to us by our dear friend, Tina Bede, the first visit was amazing but we were afraid it was just a one-off chance of having an amazing experience. The next two times were also award-winning.
Please don’t let the name fool you. Being called Potsticker House, you would assume there would be countless potsticker options to please your palette. Actually, there are several pages of options on their menu with only 3 potstickers for you to choose.
As one of us is a vegetarian, there are plenty of things here on the menu to please a vegetarian. The people who run the place are very nice. They tend to leave us alone, which sometimes is annoying when you want the bill, but it’s less annoying than going to a place where they interrupt conversation every 10 minutes.
