This weekend on September 26, it's going to be a double-whammy for dumpling lovers in the city: The day marks National Dumpling Day, but Old Montreal's glamorous dim sum bar and boozy hangout JIAO is going to be hosting a bottomless brunch session with all-you-can-eat dumplings.
The only catch is that it's one day and one day only, with the brunch lasting for three hours and the festivities ending with an even bigger party when its regular opening hours start. You'd better reserve a spot while you can.

On the non-stop dumpling side of the menu, it'll be gyoza, matcha har gow, siu mai, wontons with a spicy peanut sauce, and veggie potstickers for $26. As for drinks?
Non-stop mimosas will be up for grabs for a trifling $30, but there will also be a long island iced tea-style drink and espresso martini, both made with Rémy Martin cognac.
Montrealers who miss out—or simply can't afford the food coma and/or hangover the next day—should note that JIAO recently added new dishes to its menu, including a $ 100 fried rice dish that's infused with Louis XIII cognac and garnished with wagyu beef, truffle oil and caviar.
JIAO dim sum bar's third anniversary with all-you-can-eat dumplings is happening on September 26 only from noon to 3 p.m.; the restaurant is located at 399 Notre Dame Ouest in Old Montreal, and is open every evening from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.
