Dumplings are basically little Asian pockets of joy and comfort that can be pan-fried, steamed, or boiled. The fillings range from juicy meat, crunchy vegetable, and mixed versions that make this versatile dish a favourite for many. And since September 26 is National Dumpling Day, we thought you might like to know where you can eat some of the best in Hong Kong.

RECOMMENDED: Need help to digest all the dumplings? Head to these new cafes for a coffee or find out where to get a digestif at these bars.

Nom Nom Dumpling

Restaurants Chinese Wan Chai

This dumpling shop chain in Hong Kong is well-known for offering good quality dumplings that are cooked fresh, and a filling-to-dough ratio that is always on point. The Nom Nom Wan Chai branch is a popular outlet, as is its Causeway Bay and Mong Kok branches. They serve up all the classic dumplings including pork and vegetable varieties, but it's also worth trying their more creative versions such as sukiyaki beef dumpling, and spicy Chongqing-inspired wontons.

Dumpling House

Restaurants Chinese Tsuen Wan

Tucked away inside (Tsuen Cheong Centre), the restaurant is known for its sizeable dumplings. There are also plenty of options and flavours to chow on – from traditional flavours to the more quirky cheese, lamb and onion, and spicy pork fillings, which are all still worth a try.

Yuen Fong Dumplings

Restaurants Chinese Sham Shui Po

Specialising in pork and leek-filled potstickers called guo tie (the crescent-shaped cousin to the Shanghainese sheng jian), Yuen Fong Dumplings has a loyal following for a good reason. They've been in business for over 40 years, and the shop even used to supply this type of dumpling to other restaurants across Hong Kong back in the day. Now, you can grab a quick bite to eat at the restaurant or even pick up a few packs to cook at home.

They offer soup dumplings which come with a bowl of the shop's signature fish soup, or crispy pan-fried dumplings that are juicy and flavourful on the inside. Make sure you pile on some of the shop's homemade chilli and pickle, it will elevate the whole dumpling eating experience!

Wing Lok Dumpling Shop

Restaurants Sheung Wan

A simple dumpling shop that delivers quality dumplings time and again is a good shop for us. Here, dumplings are served in a flavourful broth and offer various fillings to choose from. Adventurous diners can try flavours such as cheese or curry, but the classic pork and cabbage is just as good. All dumplings can be served with rice noodles and are perfect for a quick, simple meal. The nutritious fish maw with pork bone and Chinese yam broth is just as enjoyable as the dumplings too.

Dumpling Pro

Restaurants Chinese Jordan

Dumpling Pro is a favourite among locals in Jordan. It serves up hearty portions of dumplings for a reasonable price, so what's not to like? Try the cumin mutton dumplings or beef and leek dumplings which are meaty and jam-packed with flavour.
