The UK’s Dumpling International Festival returns to Birmingham

Big, fat, steamed or fried Taste and Liquor bring together the best dumplings the UK can find. Welcome to the UK’s first International Dumpling Festival 2019.

The Award Winning Taste and Liquor presents the UK’s first International Dumpling Festival, a street food festival serving dumplings in multiple ethnic variations. This special food project will be opened all day-to-night from 12pm to 8pm.

Join them on a journey from Korea to India, Jamaica to Russia, and America and beyond, as they explore the great wide-world of dumplings. The festival has collaborated with six Midlands street-food vendors to curate a mouth-watering new menu of dumplings and other fare, including; 
POLAND & RUSSIAN: Indulge in Fully Belly’s Traditional Pierogi Dumplings from Eastern Europe, containing strong flavours like Herby Beef or Mushrooms (v) or Russian Style Dumplings with potatoes, cottage cheese and onion.

JAMAICA: Jamaican Fried Vanilla Dumplings served with Jerk Vegetarian Curry and Traditional Soul Food.

INDIA: deep fried Kofta Dumplings (Vegetarian/ Meat/Gluten Free) and Chick-Pea, Tamrind & Whisky Gol Guppas.

KOREA: Get transported away to the Far East with flavours from Korea. Having trained as a chef in China, Seoul Food by Halton Turner will tantalise your four senses with Pork & Kimchi Korean Crispy Dumplings, Seafood Wanton Noodle Soup (with/without Spicy XO Sauce), Korean Fried Chicken and a help yourself pickle and sauce bar - be it steamed, boiled, pan-fried, or deep-fried - Turner will present some of the best Pan-Asian Dumplings to the festival.

Now, we’ve put all these delicious dumplings in one place. You’ll also find un-traditional flavors from:

AMERICAN: Or indulge in some Sweet Fried Dumplings from The Dough Bar.
