Dinesty Dumpling House had been recommended to me by friends who used to live in Vancouver. I’m a big xiao long bao fan and apparently they have the best around.
Our table of two extended to become a table of five, I don’t think the wait staff were too pleased but it was great for me as there were more dishes I could try!
To start, pork xiao long bao & pork buns. Xiao long bao was on point. And super cheap, I could go there and just eat plates of them! The pork buns were quite oily and I wasn’t as sold on them. Much prefer to stick to the steam dumplings but you never know until you try!
Next round, scallop, prawn and squid stir fry with vegetables. I’ve been craving vegetables and this did the trick. Beautiful and fresh seafood and Veges with a simple white garlic sauce.
I sampled the basa sweet and sour which was full of flavour and beautifully cooked and also the homemade noodles which were silky and flavoursome.
When I left I was so full as I wanted to try everything! Definitely worth checking out. Great Chinese food at a reasonable price point.
Hot tip: arrive before 9.30pm even though they close at ten. Last orders are at about 9.25pm – I learnt the hard way.
