Fat Dumpling

A city can never have too many dumpling dens. Fortitude Valley has welcomed into its belly new restaurant Fat Dumpling serving up juicy, plump dumplings, which are handmade each day by various members of the Wang family. Tucked in next to Reverends Fine Coffee, Fat Dumpling sees the original brick walls of the long skinny space revived, meeting dark wooden falls and dim Edison bulbs overhead. Owner David can be found in the kitchen along with his sisters, hand-cutting dumpling cases and filling them with the freshest of ingredients, just like they do at home. Dumplings come poached, steamed or pan-fried, with each mouthwatering bite delivering a succulent burst flavour. Splash your plate in a plentiful supply of soy sauce before turning your chubby parcel of pork and Chinese cabbage through the dark sauce, adding a drop of Chinese vinegar and Sriracha hot sauce here and there. The restaurant also serves up a selection of small plates and main dishes, Australian wines, Chinese beers, hot tea and a single tempting dessert – a peach spring roll with vanilla ice-cream.
