The Dumpling Tree
As its name suggests, The Dumpling Tree specialises in delicious dumplings prepared on-site to produce mouth-wateringly fresh dishes. The Dumpling Tree also takes inspiration from the Yunnan area of China. Here, locals live in harmony with nature and enjoy a range of honest, earthy dishes that provide a good balance of nutrients and flavours. The team at The Dumpling Tree aims to recreate such plates for the people of Cambridgeshire and the menu offers a refreshing change from the dishes typically associated with Chinese cuisine.
The list of appetisers includes a zesty seaweed salad, a crunchy cucumber salad and warm, regional dishes like homemade pan-fried cheese. Silky wontons make for a perfect light main – these are particularly delicious when served in soup – while dumplings filled with the likes of pork and kimchi, and tofu and green beans, can be enjoyed either boiled or fried. Noodle soups are a particularly popular option too, and the variety of specials is enticing and impressive. Who can resist crispy and aromatic roast duck, or a dish of tantalising chilli chicken?
With its roots firmly planted in Cambridge, The Dumpling Tree is moving to The Med on Perne Road in the latter half of 2019, combining popular pub drinks with fresh Chinese cuisine. The place will stand out not just for its food and drink but for its scale, comfort and style, facilities, location and ample car park.
