Dumpling King ~ Chinese - Newtown

Dumpling King is a little gem in Newtown with a menu that's half 'Strayan' style Chinese and half northern style Chinese. Everybody's happy.

Cucumber salad with vinegar garlic sauce - $9.80. Cucumber salad dish is perfect with stodgey northern style Chinese dishes. The Dumpling King version of this dish has a mild chili hit, very happy.

Steamed northern style dumplings - 12 for $9.80.

Shredded pork in Beijing sauce with hand-made pancakes - $15.60. A mound of stir fried pork with shallots and four light, fluffy pancakes. How come in Chinese restaurants they never give you enough pancakes?

Serving suggestion....

Stir fried hand-made noodles with lamb - $9.80. The handmade noodles here are excellent, we've been back a few times for them.

Dumpling King Chinese Restaurant is at 194 King Street Newtown. Ph 9557 2188.

  1. lol we always run out of pancakes. Usually if you ask, they will give you some more.

  2. Request more pancakes! LOL.

    What are the 'strayan dishes? :-)

  3. Haha totally agree with the pancakes! Seems to happen every time especially with Peking duck, shame they usually charge for extra wrapping

  4. I heart Dumpling King. You need to fill your pancakes to maximum stuffing capacity - you won't run out that way (trust me, I know)!

  5. Mmmmm, Ask for more? Why didn't I think of that? doh!

    Strayan is bogan for Australian :-)

  6. This place is packed just about every night of the week. Love the noodles and dumplings

  7. I have never been to this place, but it looks great! The shredded pork looks awesome.
