I can always trust the hotels to wow on presentation and Golden Peony's rice dumplings came in a luxurious carrier which I already had plans for its use.

I hardly go for vegetarian dumplings and this is a first. The truffle fragrance was such a pleasant whiff and with the multigrains, this was a lot tastier than it sounds on description and the mushrooms definitely had a part to play in this.

'Gou Bu Li' translates to food dogs would ignore, literally and I wonder why dogs would even ignore tender pork collar! This is a creative play on the otherwise classic Chinese stuffed bun dish, it boasts of a host of delicious ingredients. Ginger is well hidden amidst everything else and this was hands down the tastiest dumpling dogs would ignore.
