Soup dumplings in the GTA

  • d

Can anyone recommend the best place to get soup dumplings in the GTA? I have heard of a great place in Markham for these dumplings (dumplings that you eat generally with a spoon. They have a bit of filling and a rich broth inside), but I don't know the name.

  1. I've had awesome soup dumplings at Asian Legend on Dundas east of Spadina. Esp. the pork soup dumplings. Nice decor, too.

      Ditto Asian Legend. They have more than one location too.

    2. The place in Markham is Ding Tai Fong (Hwy 7 and Woodbine). The soup dumpling is Xiao Long Bao in Mandarin.

        Thanks, Cecilia. Took your advice and went out to Markham and they were lovely. Best I've had since moving from NYC!!!

      2. I don't really like Ding Tai Fung for dumplings, as Shanghinese food goes their things are only Ok. There's a place at McCowan and Alton Towers (in the same mall with the Kum San supermarket) in Scarborough which I think has some of the best Shanghinese food, including dumplings. I don't know the english name, but the Chinese name literally translates out to Big Shanghi.
