New Dumpling Place in Mother Dumpling's old Huron Location

Yep that's right. A opportunist has seized the old location. Don't quote me on this but I think it's called "Family Dumpling _______?". I peeked throught the window today while walking my dog and there was a whole crew of staff making dumplings. I'm very curious. With all the opererational mishaps Mother's Dumplings is currently experiencing, it would be nice to have another downtown dumpling fix.

    I wonder if they sell them in Frozen form - if so, I will be down there to snag 5-6 dozen and stock up - - stupid business decision by MD to stop selling in frozen format....heck they would have already made $100+ just from my last freezer filling run.

      re frozen, MD can't keep their own freezers full with their new level of business so we all get stuck with cooked-only.

      On the positive side, most types are "today's dumpling" everyday! :D


      Family Dumplings has taken the colours and the design of MD's restaurant and, according to some, is even saying that they ARE Mother's.

      Pretty slimy if you ask me!

          I walked into to Family Dumplings a couple weeks ago. When I asked one of the staff their if there was a relationship to Mothers dumplings she clearly said they had nothing to do with Mothers Dumplings. The branding rip off is quite amusing though. I will look past this if the dumplings are worth it. I'm going to try it real soon!
