Squaremeal Review of The Ugly Dumplings ?


This tiny, two-floor site is now home to unsympathetically named dumplings. The name seems a bit mean considering how attractive they look, but it’s an undeniably memorable moniker. Already established on London’s food market scene, the headliners are stuffed with fillings such as roasted duck with hoisin sauce and spring onions, oyster sauce-marinated pork and prawn, or satay chicken with curry powder and coconut milk. The second speciality here is noodles, while there’s an effort to make room on the menu for vegans too, via spinach, carrot, shiitake mushroom and tofu dumplings, for instance. This site has a busy recent history, having been the place where it all began for Pitt Cue Co (before it moved to Liverpool Street), followed by Rockadolla hotdogs and then a brief return for Pitt Cue, renamed as Little Pitt.
