Nice sit down Dumpling place
I am looking for a casual dumpling place in Mtl or Laval (outside of Chinatown) that is good to go on a friday or saturday night with a group of people. I loved Ping Pong in Europe/Middle East and i'm looking for this sort of vibe.. not the hole in the wall type places although they offer great dumplings
I recently tried Dumpligs Etc.
For starters the establishment is very clean (always a plus). The chicken dumpling soup (Royal Dumpling Soup) was very good with a nice taste of five spice.
Not a huge selection of dumplings, only 8.
We tried the pork/ginger/mushroom (steamed) and the chicken/dill (fried).
-Too expensive, $13 & $14 for only 12 dumplings as opposed to the usual 15 for $8-$10.
-Filling was good but lacked juice, no need to worry about squirting your dining companion which takes all the fun out of having dumplings.
Dough was not up to par when comparing it to the usual downtown suspects, a bit too thick and very reminiscent of store bought frozen dumplings.
I was told the dumplings were made in house, no evidence of ladies rolling them up though like Quing Hua or Mai Xiang Yuan.
If you are in the area and don't feel like driving downtown it will do. Decent for WI standards and a welcome addition since there's no other dumpling place in the area.
