What are the three places where you can eat dumplings in Kaohsiung?

Taiwan food recommend

1 Restaurant

Many Taiwanese restaurants in Kaohsiung have dumplings on their menu, so you can eat them.

They taste great and I have never had a failure.

If you’re looking for a more than average dumpling, I suggest eating at a restaurant!

2 Night markets

There are many night markets in Kaohsiung where you can eat dumplings.

However, in my experience, it is not to eat dumplings at night markets.

This is because the dumplings they use are frozen supermarket dumplings and do not taste good.

When I was living in Kaohsiung, I used to bake my own frozen dumplings from the supermarket, so I knew immediately.

So, keep in mind that the chances of finding good dumplings at night markets are less.

3 Hotels

There are some luxury hotels in Kaohsiung that offer meals.

The meals at the better priced hotels are tasty and you can get delicious dumplings.

However, staying in a hotel just to eat dumplings is expensive, so it is recommended to take advantage of special occasions to taste them.

What is Steamed Yuan Potstickers?

Taste of the food

Taiwan Kaohsiung dumplings

I ordered steamed dumplings and hot and sour sauce!

The dumplings were steamed well and had a beautiful shape.

And when you try them right away, you can feel the flavorful broth overflowing from inside the dumpling!

Since the dumplings are freshly made and served, they are very hot, so please be careful.

The skin is glutinous, and you can feel that you are eating a solid dumpling.

As for the taste of the hot and sour soup, it too has just the right amount of sourness, and is delicious and soothing to the body.

This is also freshly made, the temperature is a little hot, so please be careful when drinking.
