Located conveniently just off Queen St mall, Dumpling Republic has at its helm Master Sim - executive chef and Singaporean dumpling master who trained for 15 years to achieve master qualifying status.
As such Dumpling Republic is typical of the modern eateries found downtown in Singapore’s mega shopping malls, where crowds gather day and night to chow down on fast and delicious bites such as those served here.
Dumplings are the house specialty and come in all varieties, from the Shanghai-ese style Xiao Long Bao (steamed soup-filled dumplings) to gyoza style pan-fried dumplings and steamed buns. Recommended are the delicious steamed pork dumplings, prawn and scallop or pan-fried chicken and leek dumplings, while the mixed vegetarian basket features a mix of vegetable and delicious pumpkin dumplings.
Otherwise there’s plenty of other options on the extensive menu, which includes Cold Snacks such as Shanghai style chicken or slow-poached beef with Singaporean sauce, Hot Snacks like Steamed Chinese bread with pork belly or Crispy Chicken Wings, Soups such as Hot and Sour Chicken Soup, Mains like Braised Noodles with Seafood or delicious Peking Duck Wraps and Rice dishes such as Steamed Rice with Crispy Pork Belly.
In addition Dumpling Republic’s desserts are worth a try, particularly the Sweet Berry Dumpling Basket, which consists of steamed buns filled with hot cooked berries.
From the drinks list, customers can enjoy anything from a Dumpling Sour cocktail or Ginger and Lemongrass Martini to a Tsingtao, Asahi or Cascade beer, cider or glass or bottle of red or white wine.
For something light and non-alcoholic, choices include a good range of teas including Hibiscus House brewed iced Tea or Hot thyme tea, iced chocolate or chai lattes and house signature Pineapple and Mint Freeze.
