The Market feels like a nice, modern coffee shop. One that happens to serve rice bowls and noodles and also has a little booth up front where a woman makes dumplings from scratch. Order at the counter, then find a seat and hang out as long as you want. It’s perfect for quick lunch, and it’s your best option in the area for dumplings so fresh you can watch their replacement being made.
