Dumplings of China
This unprepossessing little restaurant is more than just great dumplings and definitely worth seeking out.
Good things come in small packages and that certainly applies to Dumplings of China. At this low-key spot in Tollcross, the kitchen massively outperforms expectations and all at a very reasonable price. Dumplings are the name of the game, with ten different varieties to choose from. Cuttlefish is housed in a black wonton, with juicy gentle fishiness filling the steamed casing. Pork, prawn and chive comes in a rosy parcel and fulfils classic dumpling expectations. Normally steamed, ask if you want them fried. Elsewhere on the menu, fried whole king prawn with dried chilli is sizzling and tender. Braised aubergine yu xiang-style features yummy ground meat in the mix, so be sure to clarify your dietary preferences when ordering – the kitchen will meet your desires. Fried lamb with onion and cumin seed is so satisfying it will make your bleakest, post-work Monday night feel restorative. If you're looking for glamour, this isn’t the place. But if you’re looking for excellent no-fuss Chinese food, book a table immediately.
