We ordered one Sichuan Pork Noodles ($6) and one lunch set ($16) that comes with Braided Pork Noodles + Original Dumplings (4pcs) and Longan Osmanthus Pu-er drink for 2pax.

Portion was alright, just nice for us.

Taste wise, the dumplings were good, ingredients were fresh and tasted well without the vinegar and ginger.

The noodles were good too, but they don't live up to their names. Was expecting the Sichuan Pork Noodles to be spicy, but didn't get any of the kick. The Braised Pork Noodles was more like pulled pork than the lu-rou kind of braised pork. But in any case, they're still both very tasty.

The drink was good too, refreshing and had good amount of longan and osmanthus-like jelly in it. But I wouldn't pay the ala carte price of $6 for it.

The lunch set price of $16 is only worth it because of the price of the drink. Otherwise just the noodles (mostly around $6) and dumplings (mostly around $8 for 5pcs) might be more worthwhile. Can get coffee/tea elsewhere, but that's just a personal opinion.

Overall good experience and would definitely be back again for the tasty food (and not the drink!)

Lunch sets here go at $16 for an order of noodles, dumplings, and drink. I know I've arrived really late to the party seeing as how @dumpling.darlings gained popularity months ago but I only recently got over a mild fear of dumplings 🀣

At least I can say now that it's worth the hype! I actually really enjoyed the food and fusion bar ambience. The staff were friendly and there was great indie music playing too. Oh, and there's 30% off on #burpplebeyond !

Miso mushroom noodles 🍜 8/10

These noodles look dry but they're full of moist earthiness and fresh mushrooms. I would've appreciated a little more sweetness to give more dimension to the umami miso flavour. Texture wise the noodles are perfect, with the crispy shallots, springy noodles, and absolutely beautiful ajitsuke tamago.

Sichuan pork noodles 🍜 7.5/10

Compared to the miso mushroom noodles, these were notably drier. There was a definite "ma" taste from the pork's noodles but it was a bit jarring because it lacked a fiery flavour.

Passionfruit ginger soda 🍹6/10

This drink is basically sour passionfruit flesh at the bottom and topped with soda that wasn't sweet. Personally not my cup of tea because I wasn't expecting such a strong passionfruit flavour. At least, I expected the soda to be sweet to balance out the iconic piquant of passionfruit.

Salted plum pu-erh 🍺 7/10 (not pictured)

This dark-coloured drink came with foam on top as if it were a mug of stout. When you drink it, however, the overwhelming salinity is quite a shock to the senses. Only order this if you really adore savoury drinks.

Without the lunch set, an ala carte set of 5 Sichuan dumplings would cost $8.
I loved this the most. Delicious boiled dumplings doused in a good amount of spice and vinegar Sichuan sauce. Think your usual hong you cha shou but even better and tastier (and somehow, less oily). Would come back for it😜
Dumpling darlings gets crowded during peak hours, recommend to reserve when able!

Choosing the XO Prawn noodles over the other noodle options requires a top up of $4. This is probably because of the three shelled prawns given in the huge bowl of noodles. The noodles were lathered in a strong seafood smell which further requires an acquired taste. Deshelling the prawns were a pain, and while it went great with the noodles, as a whole it did not seem to match up with the expectations of a flavourful bowl of seafood noodles. A decent and maybe delicious bowl of noodles to some, but definitely still worth a try.

The $16 weekday lunch set comes with noodles, a plate of 4 dumplings and a drink. However, for the prawn and crab dumplings, a top up of $2 has to be made. This is new on the menu, yet was arguably unimpressive. The shredded pieces of prawn and crab felt like floss to me, and the fried outer layer did not seem to pair well with it. I’m not sure, but perhaps a steamed option may work out fine or even better as well. Nonetheless, it’s worth a try for seafood dumpling lovers!

Dumpling Darlings offer a lunch set with a price base of $16, including a bowl of noodles that comes with a ramen egg, a gang of 4 dumplings, and a drink of choice.
Usually, this bowl of Sichuan pork noodles cost $6 at ala carte with $1.50 top up for a ramen egg.
Albeit slightly disappointed at how it didn’t really live up to the Sichuan spicy kick, this bowl was rather flavourful with generous amounts of minced pork and what I believe is crispy shallots. With a good amount of ingredients and crunch in each bite, this bowl of noodles was simply delicious. I have to say, the portion was huge as well!
