Mother’s Dumplings – Modernized dumplings

Mother’s Dumplings is one of my favorite places to have a quick lunch with friends. It’s affordable and the meals are very filling. Usually, I prefer to go to Mother’s Dumplings with many friends. We order several platters of dumplings and share all of them between us.

It is customary to order dumplings with beef or chicken filling, but sometimes the ones with sweet filling get overlooked – I have noticed that even people who frequent Mother’s Dumplings do not know that they have dessert options. The desserts often look just like other types of savory dumplings, but the stuffing is sweet. 

Sweet dumplings go very well with the jasmine green tea they usually serve there. The taste of the desserts is not too overwhelming: it highlights the taste of tea and creates a very light combination of flavours. 

Mother’s Dumplings is a very busy place, but the staff always takes time to recommend their favorite dishes or have a friendly chat, and no matter how long the line gets, everyone gets seated fairly quickly.
