Beef or Potato - those are the choices. Hands down I prefer the beef. Served with cilantro, oil, hot sauce and a slice of bread. Oh and curry powder! Deceptively filling and perfect for late night eats or some comfort food on a crappy PNW day - make sure to get sour cream on the side!

You have two choices, meat or potato dumplings. I ordered the potato and loved the topping of cilantro and hot sauce combined with the option to dunk them in sour cream.

What a cool spot. They make 1 thing and they do it so well. If you want something else, too bad. The dumplings are so good. The steam is rising from the kitchen when you walk it. Choose veggie or meat or a combo. We did the combo. They steam up your batch, hand you a dish with sour cream... More

All they serve is meat or potato dumplings and they are out-of-this-world good! Open super late and right downtown so it's a great place to stop after hitting the bars on the weekend.

My friend is a foodie so when we went to Bellingham for a race, he insisted we stop here for lunch. Small and basic, this place is charming and you are here for one thing and one thing only The dumplings! Potato or meat are your choices, or you can get a combo. They do some kind of magic that...

They only have two types: meat and potato dumplings. Covered in curry powder and dipped in sour cream, they are absolutely fantastic. This place is perfect for a late night snack as they’re open long after the bars close. I always have to get some dumplings when I’m in Bellingham.

The gal at Woodinville Distillery sent us here and what a great find! No menu. Just two kinds of dumplings -- meat or potato. We got one of each and both were AWESOME! Total little hole in the wall, with just 3-4 tables. You will totally forgive the uncomfortable seats, tiny table, paper containers to eat out of, lack of... More

The dumplings at this place are delicious! (But that is all they serve). They are beef or potato dumplings with some kind of sauce on them and they are cheap. But as a restaurant it is kind of odd. There is no menu and it seems like no one is ever there, except for the one person working. I think... More
