A couple weeks ago, my friends and I got to try the new BeiJing Dumpling as their guests! BeiJing Dumpling is located in Montreal’s Latin Quarter, on St-Denis, where you’ll find an abundance of restaurants and different cuisines. BeiJing Dumpling specializes in soup  (xiao long bao), steamed and fried dumplings and offers a few soups and entrées as well. Here are the dishes we tried:

  • Hot and sour soup
  • Vegetable and pork wonton soup & vegetable and shrimp wonton soup
  • Cabbage, carrot and vermicelli salad
  • Edamame
  • Juicy pork and real crab xiao long bao (soup dumplings)
  • Pork leak and shrimp & beef and onion steamed dumplings
  • Lamb and corriander fried dumplings

Overall we had a good experience at BeiJing Dumpling and definitely did not leave feeling hungry. With that said, there are still a few areas that need some improvement, which can be expected from a new restaurant. Service was a bit messy (dishes arrived in random orders and some dishes were forgotten as well) and the food was not consistently served warm (the edamame were borderline frozen and the hot and sour soup was lukewarm at best).

In terms of dumplings, the beef and onion steamed dumplings ones were my favorite; I really enjoyed the seasoning and taste of them. The juicy pork and crab xiao long bao were very juicy and tasty, but unfortunately, I did not taste any crab in there. The lamb and coriander dumplings were very nice too; nicely fried and still juicy on the inside. My friends who really like lamb dumplings said they were very good (I’m more of a pork kinda dumpling gal). Unfortunately, the pork, leak and shrimp steamed dumplings were dry on the inside. We had also ordered the fried shrimp dumplings, which we never received; its a shame, because I was very much looking forward to tasting them.

If you’re in the area and craving dumplings, BeiJing Dumpling will certainly satisfy your cravings. They offer a lot of variety in terms of dumpling flavours and have vegetarian options too. There’s nothing like a bit of time and some minor adjustments that can negate any of these small kinks in the road!
