It is awesome when a new place opens up in the neighborhood. This is the feeling we had when Dip Dumpling joined Gracia towards the end of last year. It is not one of those places that screams out calling for you, but once you go there you will love it. We love its identity, its purity. Also you must like dumplings, because that is the main attraction on their menu.
Ana and Eduardo, have brought their experiences from New York and China, along with their team back to Barcelona.
The place is simple, clean and minimally decorated. It is a very relaxed environment with just enough space to seat around 12 people. It feels like the feng shui is spot on.
Furthermore, the menu is just as simple and intentionally limited as the decor. At Dip Dumpling they use the best and freshest ingredients. Not only that, they painstakingly do everything by hand, even aspects of the cooking and preparation a machine could easily do. Luckily, for us, we get to taste the love and effort that goes into preparing the food.
We usually start off with some greens, edamame, bok choy and broccoli. We are also served a little cup of kimchi to open up our appetite.
For drinks as they do not serve any alcohol (and you won’t even need it here), we usually get the ginger or green juices.
Next, you can select between the beef, pork, shrimp, and vegetable dumplings. We have a bit of everything but our favorite are the beef dumplings.
Finally, we end up having the apple pie dumplings for dessert. They are so light and not super sweet.
The meal is satisfyingly filling, but maintains a sense of lightness. Overall, it’s just a healthy, soothing and yummy experience.
