New Northern Dumplings

A good dumpling has a thin ‘skin’ and juicy interior. Sadly, many of my favourite dumpling places have closed or the quality went down, but this one is thankfully still open.

Atmosphere: Plain
Service: Average

The interior is rather plain, but people come here for the good food and great prices. Service is nothing outstanding but has never been rude. The food comes relatively quickly for being cooked on the spot.

Simple and dressed with lots of garlic, this is a refreshing appetizer.

The onion cake is delicious and a must-try. Chock-full of green onions, it arrives steaming hot. Probably one of my favourite places for these green onion pancakes.

The noodles were soft with a slight chew but the cabbage was a bit overpowering and made the dish rather bitter.

Vegetables with garlic

Plain ol’ veggies cooked with garlic.

The xiao long bao are a bit of a miss here, with thick skins and lacking a soupy interior.

Now, for the dumplings. My absolute favourite are the egg and leek ones, though all the ones I have tried have been good. Dip them in a little vinegar for optimum taste.

EDIT: As of 2016, my favourite is the pumpkin and egg ones. Light and dainty, they also pair well with vinegar.

This place is definitely a ‘hidden gem’ for dumplings, and the value is amazing at 15 dumplings for $4.99.
