◾Dumpling Platter [$20]
◾Braised Pork Noodles [$7.5]

Dumpling Darlings has been on my list of places to try for years. For years! Even after the opening of their second outlet - which I had to walk past many times as it was close to my previous place of work - I still did not had the opportunity to give them a try for a myriad of reasons.

Well, it was long enough and I finally made plans to head down to the OG @dumpling.darlings outlet to give them a try and I was not disappointed.

It was a no-brainer that I went for their platter of 15, with a mix of 5 different dumpling flavours at only 20 bucks! What a bargain. The flavours included:

◾Fried Pierogi

...and they were all really good dumplings I tell ya. Each with distinct and unique flavours, I was actually surprised everytime I popped the next flavour into my mouth. Standouts for me had to be the Fried Pierogi - a truffle potato and bacon stuffed dumpling. While the Momo had a blend of interesting curry spices and Labneh. Yum.

To top it off, I also got the Braised Pork Noodles that consisted of pork ragu and soy tare. This tasted a lil' weird to me though, not good not bad but I definitely wouldn't go for it next time. The XO Prawn Noodles caught my eye on the otherhand. Next time?

Dumpling Darlings is definitely worth a visit. Their dumplings are for sure darlings - with exquisite taste and actually affordable pricing. My one gripe is the 45 minute dining time which is pretty abysmal but you gotta do what you gotta do with such a cramp space I guess - so make those reservations y'all!
