KOREAN MANDU AT KOREANA, Hicksville: The mandu at Koreana are no shrinking violets. These husky, hearty dumplings are filled with a mixture of beef and pork and served with a lusty dipping sauce of soy, hot pepper, scallions and sesame seeds. Each mandu is almost the size of an iPhone. Heartier still: the same mandu fried. $8.95(Credit: Linda Rosier)

Delicious dumplings on LI: 10 good bets
