Dumpling World

January 19, 2013


On our last visit to Hobart, we stayed quite close to Dumpling World and hung out at the neighbouring Pilgrim Coffee a lot. We should have taken a closer look at the menu - Dumpling World clearly mark their plentiful veg*n and gluten-free items (although those with allergies may wish to exercise extra caution). Alas, we didn't inspect that menu, and it took a blog post on Appetite Affliction to alert us to our mistake.


Our mistake was not repeated this year - we made sure to stop by for an early dinner. While there are veg-friendly rolls, noodles, soups, rice and stir-fries on offer, we focused purely on the eponymous dumplings. Their skins were soft and fresh, though a little thick; their filling included finely minced vegetables, noodles and possibly tofu. Boiled (8 for $7) or pan fried (10 for $10), they were great.


It's a low-cost, no-frills experience that seems popular with the local students. The staff were courteous, the food arrived quickly and the surrounds were cheerful; Dumpling World was the best kind of cheap eat.

Our visit was inspired by fellow veg*n blogger Appetite Affliction. Dumpling World also gets the nod from Rita's Bite and Too Many Pies.

Dumpling World
cnr Liverpool & Argyle Sts, Hobart
6224 1830
veg dishes $1-10

Accessibility: I recall 1-2 steps down on entry and a moderately spacious interior. We ordered and paid at a low-ish counter, brought our own cutlery and condiments to the table, then food was delivered where we sat. We didn't visit the toilets.

    1. Glad to help out, Penny. :-) I hope you enjoy Dumpling World too. We've also heard good reports of the vegan options at Dumpling Express.

  2. Those dumplings have become some kind of legendary thing that Mr. AA & I reminisce about when someone mentions Tasmania... Your photos are making me feel nostalgic!

    I think the black sesame seeds and spring onion are a nice touch - it's rare that you get served anything other than straight up dumplings when you order them anywhere else :)

    1. Hi AA! Thanks for the recommendation on this one. Like you, I noticed the better-than-usual presentation: our fried ones were neatly fanned on the plate, and had that garnish on top... very cute. :-)
