AMAZING
1st KHINKALI
Mama Manana, Kyiv
Plate of mutton with mint, and sulaguni cheese filled dumplings. Heavenly!
2nd KHINKALI
Gogi, Kyiv
I love dumplings in pretty much any form. Let me tell you, these khinkali are phenomenal! Packed with salty, molten cheese that oozes out for an amazing cheese pull from your mouth. Season the exterior, pick it up by the knot at the top with your hands and devour!
2nd KHINKALI
Gogi, Kyiv
Meat filled, with a little soupy broth that will burst out of your first bite. This is the big brother of the dainty Chinese Xiao Long Bao it resembles. And there's more of it so I'd contend it's better!
3rd SHIU MAI
Din Tai Fung, London
These were foodgasmic 😍
4th PORK XIAO LONG BAO
Din Tai Fung, London
The classic XLB lives up to expectations 🥟👍🏻
5th SHIU MAI
Din Tai Fung, Seattle
A favourite at Din Tai Fung for good reason. Always good 😋🥟
6th THREE SPICE PRAWN
Sumthin Dumplin Lorne, Auckland
Wholemeal flour wrapper, with juicy spiced prawn and pork filling with a little water chestnut in there too. It's got a gorgeous fried, caramelised base and is topped with fried shallots and sliced green onion. The killer is the signature chilli oil sauce, with bits of pork fat in there to bump up the savoury flavour and add a mild but worthy heat. Top notch dumplings! 🥟
7th XIAO LONG BAO
Shanghai Village 蘇杭名小吃, Melbourne
Not as much soup inside as others I've had, but no bad thing as there's a) no risk of explosion as you take the first bite and b) it cools a little quicker so you can get to the eating much sooner which is a definite bonus!
8th POTATO VARENIKI
Puzata Hata, Kyiv
Boiled dumpling filed with potato. Served with fried onions and śmietana
9th PELMENI
Puzata Hata, Kyiv
Little morsels of meat in a simple boiled wrapper. Delicious 😋
10th CHERRY VARENIKI
Puzata Hata, Kyiv
Sour cherry in boiled dumplings, topped with śmietana and sugar. I wasn't sure what to expect, but these were delicious and moreish 🥟😋
11th TRUFFLE AND PORK DUMPLINGS
Din Tai Fung, London
Fancified XLB with truffle. Note: let it cool down a little otherwise you won't appreciate the flavour as you torch your tongue on the hot soup!
12th XIAO LONG BAO
Dumpling Shack, London
The only 6 pack I'm ever going to be showing off 😂😋💪🏻 🥟🥟 🥟🥟 🥟🥟
13th JIAOZI
Din Tai Fung, London
Not just about the XLB 🥟
14th DUMPLINGS
Glacis Beisl, Wien
Doughy, steamed dumplings filled with a deliciously rich, braised pork centre. Served on bed of sauerkraut. Heavy meal but delicious 😋
REALLY GOOD
16th XIAO LONG BAO
R & H Chinese Food, Richmond
A mainstay on the dumpling trail. Freshly made, generous with the soup and a good portion size of 6 pcs.
18th SHIU MAI
Empire Seafood Restaurant, Richmond
A little bit too salty so arguably didn't need any soy sauce to dip it into
19th PORK AND CRAB SOUP DUMPLINGS
Din Tai Fung, Seattle
10pc portion didn't last long between two diners. I prefer the pork staple over this blended variant.
21st MANTI
Musafir, Kyiv
Dumplings of beef with dill, served with tomato sauce and yogurt 🥟
22nd MANDU (KOREAN DUMPLINGS)
Samsoonie Noodle And Rice, Richmond
Pan-fried classic mandu and traditional Korean side dishes. Available also in a 10 pcs plate
23rd BEEF AND KIMCHI DUMPLING

She had dumps like a truck, truck... Fried mince beef and kimchi dumplings. Golden brown perfection 😋🥟
PRETTY GOOD
24th STEAMED PORK DUMPLINGS
Yum Bun - Giant Robot, UK
At Yum Bun, for a quick dumpling feed 😋

These are pork momo dumplings. Veg/vegan and chicken also on the menu, with a choice to have them steamed or fried (steamed pictured).
26th DUMPLINGS

27th PELMENI

Big portion of tasty ground beef and pork pelmeni. Served with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce
28th PELMENI
Pelmeni Pelmeni - Hawthorne Asylum, USA
Chicken filled mini dumplings served with sour cream, green onion, dill and ketchup
29th PORK AND CHIVE DUMPLINGS
Eightgrains Dumplings & Bao, Christchurch
Went with the fried option which comes served on the cast iron skillet used to fry them. Nice table presence but they could've been crispier.
