You Need to Take Your Kids to San Ramon’s New Dumpling Time

City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon recently welcomed Dumpling Time, the latest addition to its lineup of eateries. Already popular with dumpling enthusiasts in the Bay Area with locations at Thrive City and other places, this new outpost continues to offer their much-loved dumplings and buns.

If you’re a fan of delicious bites filled with flavorful ingredients, plan a visit to Dumpling Time for an unforgettable taste journey.

Here’s a video from my visit:

An Entire Menu Dedicated to Dumplings

As the restaurant’s name suggests, the entire menu at Dumpling Time is centered around these mouth-watering morsels. One of the popular items on their menu is the har gow, a well-known Chinese shrimp dumpling often served in dim sum. Encased in a delicate, translucent wrapper, this dumpling is as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the palate.

Buns and Pot Stickers, too!

In addition to the various dumpling offerings, you can also feast on flavorful steamed buns, such as their barbecued steamed buns. These little pockets of deliciousness are a must-try – perfect for lunch, dinner or whenever cravings strike.

If you prefer pot stickers and gyoza, the restaurant offers these Japanese favorites as well. Featuring different fillings to cater to different taste buds, you’re sure to find something that will tickle your fancy.

A Fancier Take on the Traditional Dumpling Experience

Surprisingly, the atmosphere at Dumpling Time is much fancier than one might expect from a restaurant specializing in dumplings. While casual dumpling joints are a dime a dozen, Dumpling Time offers a sit-down experience, where you can enjoy your meal at a comfortable and well-appointed setting. The speedy service ensures your dumpling feast arrives quickly, so you can start enjoying it as soon as possible.

While takeout is available, you might want to consider bringing your friends or family along for a shared meal within the soothing ambiance of the restaurant.

Appetizers and Kid-Friendly Options

Aside from dumplings and buns, you can begin your meal with appetizing starters like a plate of steaming edamame, the perfect accompaniment to prepare your palate for what’s to come.

Dumpling Time hasn’t forgotten about younger diners, either. For children who might not be too excited about dumplings, the restaurant offers udon noodles – a popular choice that kids can slurp up happily. However, don’t hesitate to introduce your little ones to the world of dumplings – they might just develop a taste for signature dishes like the har gow.
