Find Shareable Dim Sum and More at District Dumplings

​District Dumplings, the newest addition to Arlington Ridge, offers dim sum-style fare with a range of pan-fried, shumai, and soup dumplings. The eatery expands on traditional fillings with their own unique twists: updating old favorites such as Pork and Chives, drawing from other cuisines to create fusion recipes such as Bulgogi Beef, and inventing new vegetarian delicacies like Buddha’s Choice filled with glass noodles, mushrooms, and carrots. Try the popular Peking Duck stuffed with juicy, rich duck meat, corn, and green onions, or the sweet and fragrant Basil Chicken with carrots and onions. District Dumplings also serves tea, juice, beer, and wine.

The quaint restaurant offers a variety of bar and table seating and features a quirky chalkboard wall with a handwritten menu. The portions are large – an order gets you 10 dumplings, and you can mix and match to try different flavors and combinations.

Visit District Dumplings on Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
