Reviews for Chubby Dumpling
The steam dumplings here are spectacular, thin-skinned with tons of filling and just the right texture. Dip it in a little black vinegar that's provided and it's heaven.My family loved the dumpling soup, the broth was so pleasant and not overly salty.I was a huge fan of the spicy rice cake (noodle) dish that was a bargain as the combo comes with 5 pan-fried dumplings too! ($15)Great prices and awesome dumplings - try it!
Kind and quick service. We ordered the dumpling soup and loved it. Hearty, not too salty and generous portion. Our toddler loved the veggie and noodle buns. Unfortunately they don't have high chairs for kids but they made room for our stroller and it worked fine. We'll be back next time we're in Victoria.Kid-friendliness: Not too salty options. Room for stroller at the table.
I thought initially it was slightly pricey, but once trying the first bite of pork and chive buns, I was smitten. Delicate bun with tasty, piping hot filling. A nice touch are the pickles served with every order.There are Korean chili flakes and soy/vinegar on every table. You can request vinegar on its own also.Tea is served western style - $3 per teacup/bag.Will definitely head back to try the dumplings and noodles.
