The team behind Little Dumpling started off serving sushi but re-opened as a dedicated dumpling restaurant in December 2019 and now there are three Little Dumpling locations across Dublin.
To begin with, there were only a few varieties of dumplings to try, but now you can try all eleven flavours for €22! And just you wait until you try the long bao dumplings! They’re filled with a soup that you can just drink right up with a straw.
All of Little Dumpling’s dumplings are filled to the brim with delicious ingredients. Flavours include: mixed wild mushroom dumplings, spring lamb potstickers, prawn and fish egg wontons, spicy kimchi dumplings and roast duck bao buns.
Veggies and vegans needn’t feel left out, as there are plenty of options to try, including the aforementioned wild mushroom and kimchi flavours, alongside a whole veggie menu which was added when the menu expanded.
However, the real standout amongst them all has to be the Nutella dumplings with vanilla ice-cream and marshmallows. They are fried so you get the lovely contrast of a crunchy coating and the soft Nutella as you take a bite.
Everything looks beautiful. Some of their dishes are coloured with natural ingredients like beetroot, giving them a lovely pink appearance. With three locations in Dublin and one in Wicklow you’re never far from a Little Dumpling, and you can book a table via the website.
