Restaurants around the city offer vastly different takes on the dish, but we’ll take any dumpling as long as it’s done well. Here are Montreal’s best dumplings.

Legend has it that the Cantonese steamed/fried mini-plates, Dim Sum, originated in tea houses for travellers along the extremely important 3rd-century trade route, the Silk Road. No, not the murder-y dark web wiki, this 4,000 mile Han dynasty trade route was extremely important throughout the millennia. Perhaps most importantly, it likely brought us Dim Sum. These little plates include fabulous pork and shrimp balls, steamed pork buns, rice noodles, chicken feet, tons of veggie dishes, and dessert dishes like egg tarts, thousand-layer cake, or dou fu fa: silky tofu served with a sweet ginger or jasmine syrup. The following are some of the best Dim Sum restaurants in Montreal, most offering the full-service "order off the cart" experience. PS. If you're from Toronto or Vancouver, I already know that your Dim Sum is eons better and blah, blah, blah.

Growing up in a Chinese home and being sent to school with some sort of funk in my lunch thermos that would permeate the lunch room did not help my popularity in elementary school. Last night’s dinner of braised pork belly with pickled mustard greens over rice would be the only thing on my mind leading up to lunch time. Nowhere to be found in my He-Man lunchbox was there any care packed by my mom to give about the kids who thought it was gross; frozen chicken nuggets or peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat and other latch-key loveless lunches. Trying to explain what my lunch was, I fought fodder for ridicule and ultimately groomed my passion for Chinese cuisine and subsequent appreciation.
