Satisfy your dumpling cravings at these Montreal Restaurants

Many cultural cuisines have their own version of the dumpling. Whether it’s a pierogi, gnocchi, kreplach or a doughboy, it all boils down to the same concept – a small savoury ball of dough, often filled with meat and vegetables, that can be steamed, fried, baked or boiled. Here’s our take on the city’s best dumplings of the numerous Asian varieties.

Restaurant Qinghua Dumpling

Qing Hua Dumpling offers quite the selection of dumplings. From curry chicken to tofu and vegetables, or mushroom and zucchini to baby bok choi and dill, there are plenty of nice pairings to choose from.

Restaurant Noodle Factory

1018, rue Saint-Urbain, Montréal, QC H2Z 1K6

Oh! Dumplings

1050, rue Clark, Montréal, QC H2Z 1K2

Oh! Dumplings is a great little restaurant in Chinatown. Start with a delicious wonton soup. We also recommend the spinach, mushroom and cabbage dumplings, or the lamb and coriander dumplings.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
