Oh weekends, how much we adore you.
When Friday rolls around we countdown the minutes to 6 PM to cut out of the office and head to happy hour with our friends. Then Saturday morning rolls around and we lounge around the apartment trying to figure out what to do – a million Yelp reviews, texts to friends “I wanna do something fun, but like, not wait a million hours for Brunch”, and next thing you know, it’s 3PM and you’ve wiled the day away.
So? What’s the solution you ask? Go dumpling hopping!
A dumpling tour just might be one of the best things in the world, after cuddling with puppies and getting called up first on the kickball team in HS (so what if it was 10 years ago, whatever).
This dumpling tour will take around 3 hours and is the perfect adventure for a Sunday afternoon or Friday night for 1- 3 close friends, visiting family members or even, a fun date. The best part? You’ll get to explore the neighborhood and walk off some off all the dumplings you’ll be eating!
Get on those comfy sneakers, my friends. And if you want the TRUE experience – come join us for one of our dumpling tours! The next one is July 13th @ 11AM and 3PM.

Keeping a bag of dumplings in your freezer is the ultimate life hack. When you’re tired, or starving, boiling a few dumplings will get you filled and happy in 7 mins. Throw a bag of ramen and some veggies, green onions and you are set! Check out the Hua Du Frozen Dumpling shop in the supermarket on 253 Grand Street.
