The Taiwanese dumpling chain has been a convenient go-to spot for dumpling lovers in Hong Kong for years – and there’s no question why. Scattered all over the city, chances are there’s one in your district. It sells its dumplings per piece individually and wrap them in-house, so feel free to mix and match according to cravings and taste!

Cheung Hing Kee

Cheung Hing Kee Shanghai Pan-fried Buns

Although these buns may not be considered “dumplings” in the traditional soupy sense, we couldn’t help but include them in our list. The freshly pan-fried pockets of goodness are slightly crispy on the bottom with soft tops – but what makes them special is the juicy inside. Proceed with caution, because the filling is extremely hot!

Where: Locate the restaurants around Hong Kong here.
Price range: Under $50

Kikusan

Kikusan

For our Sassy readers who love Japanese cuisine – get to know Kikusan. Amidst the diverse menu, you’ll find the dumpling category with all the classics: from steamed pork and soup, to vegetarian-friendly vegetable dumplings (in chilli oil).

Price range: Dumplings are all under $50.
Where: Shop B13-16, Landmark Men, B/F, Landmark Atrium, Central, Hong Kong

Jin Jiao

The next time you’re strolling through the main streets of Tai Hang, remember to drop by this cosy bar-styled dumpling restaurant. With specials like the tomato-egg dumpling, and the pan fried spicy beef mala dumpling, Jin Jiao serves up a perfect blend of modern yet homely food.

Sam Tor

Sam Tor (三多麵食)

As a local favourite, Sam Tor offers deliciously flavourful bowls of wontons. With the wide variety and range, you’ll definitely find something you absolutely love, but we recommend trying the classic fresh shrimp wonton and noodles!

Where: G/F, 30 Pottinger Street, Central
Price range: Under $50

Crystal Jade

Crystal Jade

A popular restaurant for family dinners, Crystal Jade is well known to both expats and locals. Although slightly pricier than other choices on our list, this restaurant is a good location for a dinner with the family. If you’re in the area, definitely try the multi-coloured and unique Xiao Long Bao flavours available at the Tsuen Wan Plaza branch.
