The Valley's best dumplings

The Valley's best dumplings

Ah dumplings, those delicious little parcels we just can’t get enough of. Lucky for us, dumpling dens are popping up all over the Valley where you can dunk, dip and dive into dumpling heaven. We dare you to read our list of the Valley’s best dumplings without drooling everywhere!

Fat Dumpling

Poached, steamed or fried, you have to try them all and Fat Dumpling is cooking up all sorts of mouth-watering creations. Some of the tasty flavour combos include poached chicken and asparagus, steamed pork and Chinese cabbage and pan-fried vegetarian dumplings. You'll find them located at 368 Brunswick Street.

8848 Momo House

You can't call yourself a dumpling connoisseur until you've tried Nepalese dumplings - the king of dumplings according to 8848 Momo House and its worshippers. Fillings are made of juicy mince meats and vegetables seasoned with Nepalese herbs and spices. They come pan fried and deep fried - to be golden and crisp on the outside. You can even have them chili-tossed.

Jeon's Kitchen 

With Japanese and Korean cuisine fusing at this local favourite, it's no surprise there is a Kimchi dumpling offering, packed with minced pork, cabbage and other fresh vegetables. Add live entertainment, beer and seafood ramen and you have all the makings of a great night out.

Nonbei Sake Bar and BBQ

Nestled amongst shopfronts of the bustling Ann Street, Nonbei Sake Bar and BBQ is another notable member of the Asian restaurants that call the Valley home. Nonbei is a Japanese Izakaya Yakiniku restaurant, meaning traditional Japanese fare is their specialty. If you’re set on dumplings, you can’t go wrong with the Nonbei Gyoza- pan-fried pork dumplings.

Gung Ho! Dumpling

Located in the historic Bakery Lane with cosy courtyard vibes, it’s time for some delicious hand-made Chinese dumplings in flavours like chicken and prawn, prawn and bamboo shoot and pork cabbage, with more out-of-the-ordinary flavours like vegan tofu, quinoa and sweet potato and lamb coriander also on the menu.
