We continue sharing the stories behind some of our favorite food in our next round of great food temptation videos from some fabulous restaurants in Plano.
So far we’ve enjoyed a wide variety of cuisine – we experienced traditional tapas-style Spanish cuisine, we experienced Mexican food, then an American burger and champagne, to Indian eats, and some Nashville hot chicken. We’ve even had a focus on ice cream here and gelato here! This month, we’re trying some Asian fare from Dumpling House. Throughout the series, we’ll hear from these tastemakers in our community and discover where their passion comes from. Here on the blog, we’re going to take you behind the scenes every month!
Let’s go to Dumpling House!
Meet Megan who strives to make you feel at home at Dumpling House. Megan says that eating at Dumpling House is like eating her family’s cooking, and they’re so happy to have you! When they moved to Texas in 2015, they tried to find an authentic Chinese restaurant that specialized in handmade soup dumplings, but quickly realized they’d have to open a restaurant themselves.
Dumpling House’s mission is to make you feel like you’re eating traditional Chinese food with family. Located in Plano, Dumpling House offers a large menu with a variety of customer favorites like the soup dumplings, soup, lo mein, and more! Megan explains that they named the restaurant Dumpling House because not only do they specialize in it, but it’s something that her mom made for her all the time throughout her childhood.
