About Dumpling Darling Des Moines
Though Iowa might not be the first place that springs to mind when you imagine homemade dumplings, Dumpling Darling is out to change that. The Des Moines outpost of the popular Iowa-based dumpling stand has made a name for themselves, serving up fresh dumplings and potstickers, as well as a selection of buns and larger plates.
No trip to Dumpling Darling is worth your time without — duh — dumplings, so throw a good mix of both fried and steamed down on your table. From more traditional styles like pork & cabbage and xiao long bao to less traditional takes like mac & cheese and chipotle tofu, you’ve got more than enough options. Their hoisin pork baos are a must as well, and a big kimchi fried rice for the table never hurt nobody. In the end, you’re gonna make good decisions no matter what you order at Dumping Darling, so do yourself a favor and book them to cater your next event.
