Honestly, it's a bit of a struggle any time someone asks me what my favourite food is, because it really depends on my mood.\nREAD ALSO: Montreal Opens Its First-Ever “Vegan Ramen Shop”\nBut there are two things I'm constantly, always, hands down up for eating: seafood (mostly sushi, TBH), and soup dumplings.\nA photo posted by Miranda ✌?️??

Lots of them were amazing, and I have a good rotation of favourite spots I love going to.\nA photo posted by Miranda ✌?️??

St-Laurent) is a relatively new dumpling spot in the area, having opened up last year.\nTheir menu is pretty awesome, not going to lie. They've got tons of different cold and hot appetizers (my fave are their pork stuffed deep fried eggplants), and a super solid variety of dumplings to choose from.\nA photo posted by #ElisaEffect (@elisaeffect) on Feb 26, 2016 at 6:31pm PST\nLike beef curry or pork and coriander (my favourite); and other than beef and pork, they've also got chicken and seafood varieties to choose from.\nLiterally, the dumplings here are awesome every single time.\nDelicious lunch with my partner @mathildedup_A photo posted by Genevieve Bernier (@gegeburnz) on Feb 12, 2016 at 10:15am PST\nYou can have them steamed, fried, or boiled. I've had them every way, but I prefer them steamed. Either way, though, they're amazing, with thick and chewy skins, the perfect amount of flavourful broth, and fresh and yummy fillings.\n??A photo posted by @toutsimplementsue on Sep 30, 2016 at 7:42am PDT\nIt's true that I've never travelled outside of Montreal to try soup dumplings, but I know that our city usually hits the nail on the head when it comes to awesome cuisine. So, at this stage in my life, Montreal soup dumplings will forever be the standard to which I hold other dishes... and honestly, it's a difficult bar to reach.\nAdd mtlblog on Snapchat.
