Why we’re craving this dumpling for dessert.
is there a dumpling that isn’t adorably delicious? No, there is not. But most fall into the savoury har gow camp. These steamed chocolate-andred-bean-paste dumplings from Dinesty fall into the rarer dessert side of the game. With melting chocolate chips buried inside acreamy red-bean paste, the flavour pairing is surprising, yet the perfect après on a stillchilly spring night. On a recent trip to the restaurant’s Robson location, when our table debated if we had just a little more room for one or three of these, our server cautioned, “Just so you know, it’s going to take 15 to 20 minutes,”—then added, after a pause for effect—“but it’s really worth it.” 1719 Robson St., dinesty.ca
