For the best dumpling treats in Sydney
Delicious dumplings. The dumplings sensation in Sydney is alive and well

Dumplings make way for great comfort food, in tandem with a simple yet filling treat simultaneously. The great news is that dumplings in Sydney are also quite affordable. Having also dined out at many restaurants that serve dumplings in Melbourne, things are no different down there as they are in Sydney.

1. Din Tai Fung

This international dumplings sensation has a few different stores in the city, including Westfield Sydney and World Square. Upon trying their dumplings for the first time, it is easy to become addicted and you will begin to appreciate why this is the case. Whether you're a meat lover or a vegetarian, their dumplings will put on a smile on your dumpling loving face. Their dessert dumplings, namely their taro one, are also a treat. Surprisingly delicious and well steamed.

2. New Shanghai Ashfield

Dumplings @ New Shanghai Ashfield

It is great to see this dumpling paradise establishment do very well after having recently re-opened from undergoing extensive renovations. Both their fried and steamed dumpling varieties are fantastic. The fried pork dumplings are cooked just right with a juicy, meaty filling that will fill you up. Their steamed vegetable dumplings are fantastic with some sweet chilli or other hot sauce. Even without sauce, their vegetarian dumplings are fresh and delightful.

3. 7-Eleven's $1 dumplings (dim sums)

A great snack on the run, and they are surprisingly good. A bell shaped treat with chunks of flavour. Quite meaty and filling. For only $1 a pop, exceptional value is enjoyed. Off hand, I don't think dumplings (which they prefer to call dim sums) are available at every 7-Eleven store in Sydney. They're not available at the Rozelle stores, although they are available at the 7-Eleven store at Missenden Road in Camperdown.

Some of the best dumplings I have come across in Sydney that are worth sharing with others. If you have come across any other places in Sydney that serve delicious, well cooked and filling dumpling treats, then please feel free to leave a comment with the details so everyone can benefit.
