Who would ever think that dumplings could be chic? Welcome newcomer Chinoiseries & Dumplings, a new dumpling eatery that set up shop in Montreal’s Le Plateau neighbourhood. The concept is centered around a new world/old school dumpling recipe made from the highest quality local produce. You can look at it as Chinese classics with a twist.
The Chinoiseries & Dumplings also offers a unique Tea Bar displaying an array of fine exotic teas. The traiteur/dépanneur is the brainchild of native Montrealer Claude Brûlé. Having lived in China for over 20 years, Brûlé had the opportunity to explore the remarkable and sophisticated culinary havens within China mega-cities and remote hidden gems. It is there that he discovered the dumpling culture and developed a taste and appreciation for fine dumplings and delicious sauces. And so the concept sprung and grew in Montreal.
On the menu, you will find a wide range of flavours ranging from the ancient classics to new original fusions. The Chinoiseries offers an eat-in or take-out option. Whether you are in the mood to cater a high tea party or an extravagant emperor’s banquet, the options are quite wide.
The soft opening took place yesterday (June 28th) and the real party will be happening coming this Fall.
For some dumpling and tea goodness, go visit them at 4507 Rue Chabot, Montreal.
