Moving along all the restaurants on Kingsway in Glen Waverly, we were up to The Dumpling Empire. As you would be aware, The Glen and the surrounding restaurants are always packed so we always park in the multicomplex carpark around the corner (it’s also FREE!). We got in just before lunch time and it was quite empty but 10 minutes later, it was packed! We flicked through the menu and started our dumpling feast. The food came out quick smart.
I’m a steamed dumpling girl but I found the steamed pork and veggie dumplings to be quite soggy and the skin was quite thick which was a shame. The fried prawn and chicken dumplings though were the BOMB. Panfried on the bottom and delicious filling, it ticked everyone’s boxes. The only downside was again, the dumpling skin was quite thick.

I’m a sucker for chili wontons and xiao long bao so obviously they were ordered with great enthusiasm. The chili wontons in the spicy sesame sauce wasn’t too spicy. However, them wontons were frigging delish! So juicy, so plump and oh so full of flavour. The pork xiao long baos were a touch pricey and they were decent, not super amazeballs but decent enough to curb my XLB cravings.

Dumpling Empire is a pretty good place for your dumpling fix if you’re in a hurry and want cheap dumps for lunch. The service is quick, the portions are hefty and damn them chili wontons were awesome sauce. If we’re ever in need to satisfy our dumps cravings, we’ll definitely hit up Dumpling Empire again.
