September 20, 2022
A new sibling venue from Haymarket's Mr Chen Beef Noodles has just opened in Chinatown with a cheap-and-cheerful menu perfect for budget catch-ups with friends. Chef Chen Dumplings is now open six days a week on Quay Street, offering highly affordable Chinese and Malaysian eats with al fresco dining.
As you may have derived from the name, dumplings are the speciality here. Plus, as part of a new promotion, you can get them for just 80-cents a pop. There are four types of dumplings available as part of the deal, which will run from Wednesday, September 28 — pork and chive; pork and prawn; pork and cabbage; and vegetarian.
These discounted dumplings are available from 5.30pm each day until they sell out, and are only available for those that dine in. Each potion of dumplings is available steamed or fried and will set you back $8 for 10 dumplings, with a minimum order of one full portion.
Accompanying these pockets of goodness on the menu are the likes of barbecue duck bao, crispy-skin Singapore chicken, Indomie Goreng and black pepper beef. And, if you want to add some cuteness to your meal, there are also adorable panda-shaped buns.
Adding to the budget-friendly good times, Chef Chen Dumplings is also BYO with no corkage, so you and your date or your friends can bring your favourite drop of wine or craft beers to enjoy with your dumplings and noodles. There's even a BWS right across from the road. You can thank us later.
