A series on some of the best dishes around NoVA.
Dish: Dumplings, steamed then pan-fried, $5.95
Where: House of Fortune, 6715 Lowell Ave., McLean; 703-821-3779
Taste: Sometimes dumplings are mostly air pocket, not a lot of filling. Not so at House of Fortune. Ground pork occupies every crevice inside the dough. It is seriously piggy, and the huge dumplings take three bites, minimum.
