My personal highlight: The filling makes the difference! My favorite choice: Hun Dun Soup with hand made dumplings filled with pork, shrimps, ginger & vegetables on a super tasty stock, all Glutamate free
Sunday is the day to have brunch with friends. This time my hungry stomach brings me to Zurich, Kreis 4 in Langstrasse 10. Here I get introduced to a Chinese Brunch at Lucky Dumpling. The manager Angel Liu welcomes us. I let her choose our brunch menu.
What to expect from a Chinese Brunch?
The name says it all, we dive into Chinese food traditions. Please, forget about eggs and ham or croissant and jams. Here we experience a variety of dishes served as Chinese tapas (small served plates). I love the fact that you can share these small plates with your friends and eat you through the brunch menu.
Dumplings in different sizes, shapes and fillings
Get salty and sweet steamed dumplings in different sizes, shapes and ways of preparation.
Find Dumplings or Baos (an other form of a dumpling measuring about 10 cm) filled with vegetables, pork, shrimps spiced up with herbs and a delicious hand made soya sauce. Absolutely recommendable is the Hun Dun Soup. The stock is super tasty, clear and comes with wontons (additional form of dumpling in a triangle shape). It has a pork, shrimp, ginger and vegetable filling I found outstanding.
I love the sweet dumplings, filled with red beans or pumpkin. The fried dumpling with a sesame coat is super delicious, too.
All dumplings are made from scratch and fresh every day. The meat used is from regional suppliers (Zurich Oberland). I absolutely recommend the fresh brewed mint tea that comes with orange juice, too.
Talking to the owner Angel Liu I understand that she takes care about healthy food, it’s her lifestyle, too. That is why all dumplings are Glutamate free at Lucky Dumpling.
Additional tapas on the menu are: Chinese Burger made with a special pita bread bun and a slow cooked beef and pork meat added with fresh herbs and salad. Get an overview of the brunch menu here. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday. The place is recommendable for dinner or lunch, too.
