From the folk behind Britomart’s Café Hanoi, comes Xuxu Dumpling Bar, a South-East Asian eatery slash bar. As the name suggests, this place is simply all about dumplings!

The handmade pot stickers come in a variety of shapes, with a range of fillings and accompaniments. A cacophony of sound and smells emit from the Xuxu kitchen, as could only be expected from endless steaming and pan-frying of dumplings.

With an assortment of flavours to sample (from bean curd and mushroom to beef and celery), chances are you may not want to head anywhere else for dinner; though what Xuxu has done well is keep portions reasonably in-line with the notion that you’re there for a pre or post dinner drink and snack.

With the dumplings point of difference enough, Xuxu’s equally well worth a visit for its impressive cocktail lineup and pan-Asian style courtyard area.

We can only hope Xuxu is the beginning of more hospitality venues focusing on one dish and doing it well.
