my favourite genre of food that exists in almost every culture is “filling surrounded by a whole bunch of unhealthily cooked dough”

japanese gyoza? talented

indian samosas? brilliant

chinese bao? incredible

austrian knoedel? amazing

polish pierogi? showstopping

korean mandu? spectacular

italian ravioli? iconic

tibetan momo? outstanding 

american fritters? killer

literally anything vaguely resembling a dumpling no matter where it comes from or what’s in it? fucking a plus
