Gu’s Dumplings at Krog St. Market
You may remember from my post on Co’m Grill that I attempted to eat at Gu’s Dumplings on a prior occasion, but because the restaurant was so packed we were not able to eat there.
When I heard that Gu’s Dumplings had opened up shop at the Krog Street Market, I was extremely excited because it’s literally a 3 minute walk from my office.
I was expecting them to have a full fledged restaurant similar to Craft Izakaya, but they have a bar instead where you place your orders. I was also expecting them to have a larger menu as they only have two selections of dumplings. I mean that makes sense to me now, but I was expecting about thirty different options in dumplings and a full Chinese, Thai, and Vietnamese menu that you see at many other Chinese restaurants these days. It’s actually very refreshing that they know what they do well and they stick to it.
I went with one of my co-workers and we met a few more of my friends at the Krog Street Market. If you’ve never been, it’s a great new market in Inman Park with Valet parking.
We decided to each order something different from the menu at Gu’s Dumplings and split it all. We ordered the pork dumplings, veggie dumplings, dan dan noodle, and crispy beef.
The pork dumplings are accompanied by a spicy sauce that is delicious. I didn’t think the pork dumplings were anything out of the ordinary, but they are certainly delicious. The veggie dumplings on the other hand are out of this world delicious. They don’t have a spicy sauce, and instead the flavor pops more than the pork dumplings.
Everybody at the table was raving about the dan dan noodles, but I wasn’t a huge fan. They are certainly delicious, but the texture of the noodle isn’t my favorite.
The Cripsy Beef was really delicious. It was not at all chewy like you find at many Chinese restaurants and the sauce was light and delicious.
This isn’t the kind of Chinese meal that is going to make you unable to work for the next five hours after you eat it, instead it’s a more gourmet, clean tasting version of classic Chinese dishes.
