My Neighbours the Dumplings – Clapton

The  Neighbours the Dumplings is a family run Chinese dumpling house and Sake bar. They specialise in hand made dumplings, rolled fresh everyday by their expert Dumpling Team in the window of their Victoria Park restaurant. Although they are not strictly a Dim Sum restaurant, they follow the Dim Sum style of eating; lots of small dishes that are shared amongst the table.

They choose only quality ingredients for all their dishes and they make everything fresh on site everyday, to make sure it tastes as good as it can .All their meat is free range, sourced from Taste Tradition farms in Yorkshire. Their fish is sustainably sourced and their prawns are sourced from Ecuador through Chan Brothers – specialists in Dim Sum quality prawns. Where possible fresh produce is sourced from the UK, specialist ingredients are often sourced from China and East/ South East Asia.

Alongside their dishes they serve a great selection of drinks. Their wines are all organic and sourced from small scale producers in Europe through Modal Wines. They have a great range of sake supplied by Tengu Sake, who sources sake from small family run breweries in Japan. They have a regularly changing cocktail list where they play around with Asian flavours and they stock premium Japanese whiskies, Shochu and Awamori. They also serve a great range of Chinese teas all sourced directly from China and Taiwan.
