Love dumplings? Head to Dominion Road this Sunday for a delicious dumpling festival

When we crave dumplings (which, let’s be honest, is pretty often), there’s no better place to find them than Dominion Road. The iconic Auckland strip is home to some of the city’s best, and this Sunday is the location of the first-ever Dumplings on Dominion festival.

Taking place as part of this year’s Elemental AKL, Dumplings on Dominion spotlights over 35 dumpling shops and restaurants, offering all kinds of the hot, tasty morsels — from xiao long bao (soup dumplings) to gyoza and more.

Those embarking on this dumpling pilgrimage can also enjoy cultural performances, live music and other food stalls and a pop-up bar, courtesy of craft beer company Behemoth Brewing, at the Festival Hub on Wiremu Street, which will be closed to traffic for the day. We recommend starting there, and then heading on your merry way for a belly full of dumplings — we dare say there’s no better way to spend a Sunday.
