★★★★★ $$ ($10-$20)
1709 Matthews Township Parkway (Matthews/Southeast Charlotte)
Monday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m
Heat-seeking Sichuan dumplings sparkle beside steamed sausage potstickers. Succulent barbecued duck is there beside pork stomach and hot peppers, and other dishes with offal. Impressive are the soups. Rustic crocks dot most tables. Your choiceof broths; proteins; vegetables, mushrooms and greens; and noodles.
This spot may be sparse in décor, but not in authenticity and flavor. Dynasty is the place for Shanghai and taro dumplings, congee or juk (porridge), preserved duck eggs, barbecue buns, turnip cakes, pot stickers and the ubiquitous egg custard tart.
