The Chinese New Year Box from my Neighbours the Dumplings, a family-run dumpling house and sake bar based in Hackney and Lower Clapton, is a gift that keeps on giving. Stuffed to the brim with enough food to feed between two to four people (although it could definitely feed up to six people), you’ll be spoiled for choice with this box. Everything is delicious, homely and prepared with care, and will warm even the most homesick of hearts.
Some of the dishes are more interactive than others – with the pork and prawn dumplings, the filling and wrappers are provided and you can wrap them yourself according to the instructions given before boiling them and eating with the comforting fish broth provided. Everything else is easy to prepare by steaming, pan frying or heating in the oven.
The box includes: eight pieces of pork and prawn won tons with pak choi and a light fish broth; four pieces of potato and truffle glutinous rice ham sui gok dumplings; eight pieces of prawn har tau; mock tea leaf salad; six pieces of vegan turnip cake; duck pancake kit with six pieces of flatbread for rolling; steamed fillet of stone bass; lo mai gai sticky rice with chicken and dried shrimp; steamed cake with banoffee and hazelnut sauce and coconut custard; four pieces of black sesame and coconut mochi.
All dishes come with sauces, seasonings and garnishes, and the box also includes a jar of chilli oil and a bottle of black vinegar for dipping. My Neighbours the Dumplings are delivering this box across the UK, and it is available to order now. The first delivery date is 11 February for local orders and 12 February for both local and nationwide orders. The last delivery date for this box is 19 February.
