Jonny Dumpling has become so famous in Itaewon that they opened another store along the international food street. It is by far the best dumplings….ever. Usually you eat your dumplings steamed or fried right?? What is wrong with steamed dumplings?? They are way too mushy…it is like you are eating a wet donut….however fried is also not great because once you bite into a fried dumpling…the not juice inside explodes out….burning your tongue….Jonny Dumpling combines those two to make the best dumpling possible….it is steamed as well as fried. So you get that nice crunch as you bite into that soft steamed dumpling. Just check out how it looks…..delicious.
You can go to all the Chinese restaurants in Seoul and you will never find dumplings as good as these. However the wait is usually 20-30 minutes and the restaurant itself does not seat that many people. I am guessing around 20 people max. However since this is a place to go to just have Dumplings..the customers are in and out fast. You must remember to order the Semi-Fried Shrimp&Pork….not the boiled one….A famous Chinese food blogger said:
“This is a new revolution in dumplings which will be copied for years to come…”
They also have vegetarian versions as well. Here is their simple menu.
