De­voted to Dumplings

Where Vancouver - - Dining -

Of all the spec­tac­u­lar trails—hik­ing, bik­ing or oth­er­wise—to con­quer around Van­cou­ver, the Dumpling Trail is ar­guably the most sat­is­fy­ing. Nearby Rich­mond is famed for top-notch Asian cui­sine, so it’s no sur­prise that 20 restau­rants of­fer­ing delectable dumplings are all just a hop, skip and bite away. As with any trail, a map (found at www.vis­itrich­mondbc.com), sturdy walk­ing shoes and stretchy pants are rec­om­mended. Along the way, dis­cover dough-wrapped spe­cial­ties such as prawn-stuffed har gow and soup-filled xiao long bao. Re­gional of­fer­ings like bub­ble tea, kim­chi and hand-pulled noo­dles make ex­cel­lent trail com­pan­ions, too. A truly tasty trek.—Jill Von Sprecken
