Hey, Dumplings! New Restaurant! | Hey, Dumplings! is moving to their new permanent location and need your help getting ready to open.
Eat More Dumplings!
Every culture has a food wrapped in dough, and all of them are delicious. We discovered pelmeni a few years ago and loved them so much we left our corporate jobs and started Hey, Dumplings! to bring them to the pelmeni-deprived people of Vancouver. For the last 6 months Hey, Dumplings! has been serving dumplings out of our pop-up location at 721 Gore Avenue but when a larger, permanent location became available around the corner we jumped at the opportunity to expand.
Hey, Dumplings! brings you the iconic Russian dumpling with a delicious twist. Everything is made by hand in our shop in Chinatown and served fresh to dumpling lovers every day (or frozen so you can take them home and cook them yourself). The new shop at 208 Keefer Street (at the corner of Keefer and Main) will have more seats, a bigger kitchen, an expanded menu and refreshing beers.
Who We Are
Hi! My name is Heather and food wrapped in dough is my favourite food group. Three years ago I was an admin assistant by day and hobby chef by night. During a job review my boss asked me why I was working a corporate job as it was obvious my passions were elsewhere. (It was the money…) But she was right, so I took the leap and left the corporate world for the crazy world of food! Totally worth it.
At Hey, Dumplings! our motto is “we are happy to see you”. There are so many amazing food choices in this city and I am so grateful for everyone who has chosen to stop in for dumplings and a chat. Thank you. I have poured all my passion into Hey, Dumplings! and I hope you can taste the love in the food. (It tastes like gravy.)
Why Do We Need Your Help?
Hey, Dumplings! is a currently a one-person operation selling food out of a tiny hard-to-find location and people are going crazy for what we do. Eater Magazine called us one of the “12 Hottest New Restaurants in Vancouver” and we are ready to move to our new bigger space.
We will be opening our new shop fall 2017 and with your support, Hey, Dumplings! will be able to open sooner and put into place everything we will need to make awesome dumplings. Opening a restaurant is a lot of work but your contribution will help us do great things, and the best part is that you get your money back in the form of dumplings!
Hey, Dumplings! will be a fun place to hang out, listen to podcasts with us and enjoy awesome food. We’re friendly and fun and enthusiastic about what we do and we hope that you come to eat more dumplings with us.
We are at 721 Gore Ave until August 28. You should stop by!
