I don’t know about auspicious colours and numbers, but if someone labels a certain type of food “lucky”, you can be damned sure I’m getting my fill of it. Lucky for frequent town goers, the aptly-named Lucky Dumplings has set up shop in ION Orchard‘s foodie basement, with delicious noodles and dumplings available for the taking.
Newly opened, this humble food kiosk’s branding bears an uncanny resemblance to hipster food joint Dumpling Darlings. Perhaps they are sister brands. Its menu is similarly straightforward, comprising strictly noodles and dumplings in substantial portions.
Choose between two flavours for your noodles – Szechuan Chicken and Truffle Mushroom (both $7.90). Truffle lovers will appreciate the pleasant, earthy aroma that emanates from the box when opened. Not forgetting the well-marinated mushrooms and chopped green onions that add crunch to the richly-flavoured noodles! Bite into that runny onsen egg for a perfect finish to your noods.
Dumplings are available in five mouth-watering flavours:
- Original Lucky ($5.90 for 6 pcs, $6.90 for 8 pcs)
- Chili Prawn ($7.90 for 6 pcs, $9.90 for 8 pcs)
- Kimchi & Cheese ($6.90 for 6pcs, $8.90 for 8 pcs)
- Mala Chicken ($5.90 for 6 pcs, $6.90 for 8 pcs)
- Truffle Mushroom ($7.90 for 6 pcs, $9.90 for 8pcs)
My favourite flavours are Original Lucky and Truffle Mushroom, which pair well with the Truffle Mushroom Noodles. For a spicier kick, opt for the Chili Prawn and Mala Chicken.
