This used to be called Ed's Potsticker House but now it's run by Ed's wife and has dropped "Ed's." The setting, service, and food are wonderful. This was our second time here after a year or so, and it's better than ever. The three of us shared a number of dishes. We started with the seafood hot and sour soup for two that was more than enough for three. A nice touch was the black vinegar served on the side that was a nice condiment for the soup. We added the delicious soup dumplings (7) that burst with the flavor of the hot liquid when bitten into. Another plate was the terrific sauteed peapod leaves that we ordered with garlic. All in all, a wonderful experience.

Traditional Northern Chinese good is served at Ed's Potsticker House. The food is authentic and delicious. Ed's offers a wide variety of dumplings to choose from. There is a dumpling for everyone in your dining party. They also have great choices for dessert, such as the fried dough with condensed milk.

Eds has a funny name, but great food. We rarely go wrong there and it has become our favorite Chinese place (we live relatively close by). the dumplings get a promotion, and the ordinary ones are tasty and filling, you get about a dozen. The soup filled ones are not our style, but are special if you never have had them. There are also Beijing style pancakes, with various fillings that are good, but a little oily. We really like the sauteed green beans, the Beijing style MuShu, the fish with pickled cabbage, the eggplant with ginger and especially the stir fry preserved pork and sausage. A lot of dishes may seem unfamiliar is you just go to mainline places, but explore, ask questions, you have a treat coming. The staff is friendly, and service is generally good. It can get packed, a favorite of Chinese Students, but usually one can get a table.

We had one order ( 2 pieces ) egg roll. One order Mongolian beef, and one order shrimp egg foo young. All of the ingredient 's were fresh and crisp. We also brought a bottle of wine as BYOB resturant . We support our neighborhood establishment , and food is EXCELENT ! A valentine's treat of a beautiful pink rose for my wife and a piece of candy for each of us. A good resturant with good food, in bridgeport ( across the street from police station ) .

If you haven't been to Ed's Pot Sticker House on S. Halsted in Chicago's Bridgeport neighborhood, run, don;t walk, to one of the city's unique Chinese eateries.

That's because they menu offers dishes you won't find in most of Chicago's Chinese restaurants -- Northern Chinese cuisine.

Having spent 5 months working in China in 2015 (half the time in Beijing, the other half in remote northern villages), I encountered some wonderful northern Chinese dishes that you will find on Ed's menu -- shredded garlicky vinegar potatoes; authentic cold Szechuan noodles; stir fried eggplant.

Ed's is not far from Chicago's Chinatown as the crow flies, yet it is miles away from the usual menu offerings at many of America's Chinese restaurants.

Did I mention it's BYOB!

It's where my family traditionally dines on New Year's Eve.

It is open 365 days a year, so a holiday need not figure in a visit.

It is worth the trip to Chicago's south side for the only northern Chinese cuisine I know about in the city.
