However when I lived in Melbourne I was a frequent fixture at Auntie's Dumplings, a place Matt Preston from Masterchef (expert on all things food and cravats) publicly praised for its authentic cuisine and delectable dumplings.
So my dumpling judgement bar was raised high. To a height I was afraid no Dumpling King or queen in Adelaide would be able to meet.
But after discovering Gourmet House Dumplings at West Lakes, I am now eating my words, as well as their lip-smacking dumplings.
Like many dumpling restaurants there is no pretence; the chairs are plastic, you have to grab your own cutlery and if you are unable to finish your plate of juicy dumplings a plastic container is given to you promptly.
After an inexpensive and enjoyable feast, I recommend popping into Westfield and buying a bamboo steam basket because Dumpling House also sells frozen packs to take home so every day can be a dumpling day.
