that dish: to edamame heaven and beyond

Amidst the hundreds of Asian-fusion restaurants in NYC the mega dining palace, Buddakan, is a culinary destination worth a try.  Traditional Chinese selections mingle with inventive other food choices on the Philadelphia import’s menu and all are sure to delight. A trip to Buddakan is not complete until you have sampled the famed edamame dumplings ($12) or miso glazed alaskan black cod ($26). Clearly, on my most recent visit I had to try both specialties as well as an assortment of other treats.

sublime edamame dumplings... inside and out. light and fluffy they literally melt in your mouth
