If like me you love Dumplings, here are 5 places to get your fix in London. Dumplings are especially important during the Chinese New Year as eating them is believed to bring good luck for the coming year. The shape Of Chinese dumplings are similar to ancient gold or silver ingots and they symbolize wealth.
My favourite and top of the list for dumplings! Highly recommend a visit to either the Soho restaurant or the outpost in Market Halls Victoria.
Din Tai Fung
This massive 250 cover restaurant with a fantastic track record abroad serves the most incredible Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings). Definitely try them. I especially love the open kitchen where you can see the dumplings being made.
Find it on 5 Henrietta St, London WC2E 8PT
In China Town I love Leong’s Legend for its authentic Taiwanese street food. Highlights are definitely the massive soup dumpling which comes complete with a straw!
Also in China town is Dumpling Legend, where we ate more Xiao Long Bao. It is a lovely restaurant and the menu choices are incredible. The prices are so reasonable and the perfect cheap eat.
Hutong at The Shard
For a special experience with sensational views of London as your dining partner, head to Hutong at The Shard. Here you can enjoy dumplings such as Scallop and prawn wontons with hot and spicy sauce, Minced lamb and fennel seed dumplings, Mixed vegetable dumplings and Iberico pork dumplings with Sichuan garlic sauce, which are my absolute favourite.
Pictured are the Shrimp & kimchi dumpling and Black truffle & edamame dumpling available on their Experience Lunch Menu.
