We’re big fans of Dumpling, a bricks-and-mortar Asian-inspired spot in South Minneapolis that has the eclectic soul of the pop-up it once was. So it’s good to hear that they’re expanding their menu and moving into brunch. Service starts the Saturday, April 15, and hours will be 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
We got a partial list of their brunch menu, and it’s far from formulaic. It includes:
1) Pho — feels more in line with the “lunch” part of brunch than the “breakfast” bit, but we could be wrong about that.
2) Pupusas — cheesy, comforting, earthy, this could definitely soak up some significant hangovers.
3) Breakfast Bao — we aren’t sure of the contents, but the concept seems sound.
4) Banh Xeo Omelette — this Vietnamese rice-batter-based fried pancake sounds potentially quite meaty and amazing.
