Dumplings!  Burst 10 different tastes in your mouth!!

Dumpling is a very special type of cuisine. It has tons of different types that you can’t even imagine, and it hides hundreds of fantastic tastes in it. You will never know what it tastes like until you put it into your mouth. Actually, dumplings have existed in so many ways, for a long time, and even all over the world. Not only in Asia, but also in Europe, you can find the similar type of the food as dumpling, such as Ravioli. What about in Canada? As far as I know, there is no such a Canadian food as dumplings. However, fortunately, there are lots of Chinese immigrants who still keep their dinning as the way they used to have in china.

 At the heart of downtown in Montreal, there is one place that you can taste real Chinese dumplings,Qing Hua Dumplings. Unlike other Chinese restaurants, this place only serves dumplings, so you can call it as ‘The lord of dumplings’.  This place is very well known for Chinese dumplings called ‘ Xiao Long Bao’. ‘Xiao Long Bao’ is a very unique type of dumpling.

Qing Hua gives you three chioces to cook your dumplings; steamed, boiled or fried.

All the dumplings are just made when you order, so it might take a little bit longer than in the other Chinese restaurants, but I surely can tell you that it is worth.

Shrimp with zucchini and egg (steamed)

Pork and squid (steamed)

I recommend having them steamed because only when it’s steamed, you can enjoy the juice in outsells.

 I think because of the zucchini and egg, I couldn’t taste much of juice in it, but still above the average that you can’t experience at any other places. Moreover, when I put pork and squid one into my mouth, I frankly got surprised. At first, the juice from pork and squid popped out making the dough soft. And the fillings melted softly as well. I also had a little bit of garlic tastes, but not strong at all.

On every table, there are 3 different kinds of sauce, which are soya sauce, vinegar, and Chinese chilli oil, so you can mix them as you prefer, and enjoy with your dumplings together.

Even if this restaurant hasn’t been long since it’s opened, it shows what the real Chinese ‘Shao long Pao’ is. Don’t get afraid of trying!
