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?
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.
