Dumpling Hours is the newest (and apparently, the can’t-miss!) location in downtown Walnut Creek for dumplings. They opened back in mid-August and are always packed. Even when I drove by on a weekday at 11:30 a.m., there were already people eating outside!
No longer do you have to go all the way to San Francisco to get excellent dumplings. At Dumpling Hours, you can get a number of tasty appetizers and buns steamed, boiled, or fried. They also have soup, soup dumplings, vegetable options, and noodle dishes.
We tried some green beans, a Dan Dan noodle dish, and a couple of different kinds of dumplings. They were all excellent! The owners of San Francisco’s Dumpling Home opened this second spot and we are lucky they did.
We went on a Saturday evening, there was a long wait list, so we put our name in and walked to check out a couple of other restaurants. By the time we got back, 20 mins, they had called our name. We opted for either inside or outside, so that may have made it quicker. I highly recommend giving them a try, if you do, please let me know what you think! Have you tried Dumpling Hours yet?
