Best new dumpling restaurant in Sydney
Dumplings and Beer, simple yet elegant in both title and menu, have recently opened in Potts Point; offering a sumptuous selection of alcohol, dumplings and buns.

The menu is short but sweet, offering all of your dumpling favourites. But the star of the menu is, without a doubt, their signature pork belly slider. The buns for the slider are so hot and soft, fresh out of the oven, and the flavours are a match made in heaven.

Some other menu favourites include the duck bun, BBQ pork bun and pan fried pork dumplings - all of which are absolutely divine and bursting with flavour. The Dumplings and Beer cuisine is incredibly fresh, most likely aided by the fact that maximum seating is 25 people at any one time. This allows the chefs to cater to a small number of people at a very high quality.

A word of warning: once people find out about Dumplings and Beer, it is going to get busy! So my advice to readers is to get in early while it's still starting out. I can already envision hour-long queues developing down Ward Avenue.

Another important thing to note is that their liqour license won't be transferred over until mid-February so, in the meantime, it's BYO beer and wine. This is great news for those of us that love a good (and free) BYO and the ability to bring along our favourite beer to dinner. Plus, they'll even open your bottles and provide coolers and glasses for you. The service is excellent. Food is also rolled out relatively quickly, with each item being delivered as it's ready, allowing you to pace yourself and try everything while it's still hot.

Here's a sneak peek at their food and alcohol menus:

If you get in early (or better yet: make a reservation!) you can sit upstairs and watch the old karate/kung fu films on the projecter screen. You can also admire the keen glances from passers-by on the street, evidently smelling the mouth-watering aromas wafting out of Shop 2/9 Ward Avenue.

Dumplings and Beer are open 12-10pm, 7 days a week. If dining in isn't your thing, they also offer take-away. What more could you possibly want?
