West Seattle's Dumplings of Fury isn't even 10 days old yet, and already it's built a serious following. There are consistent lines at peak times, and the restaurant has been selling out long before closing — in some cases, just two hours after the doors open. The kitchen has adjusted by increasing dumpling production.
Eater stopped by the fledgling restaurant to document the dumpling-making process and scope out the scene at opening time on a weekday. Things hadn't heated up just yet, but a crowd was certainly building. If you're after a doughy fix, go early. A full menu is available on the restaurant's website.
For now, the restaurant is holding to its hours of Wednesday through Sunday, 4 to 10 p.m., though more practically speaking the hours are actually 4 p.m. "till sold out." Down the line, look for that to expand to seven days a week and include lunch, but for now, just keeping up with demand for a few hours a day has been tough for the team.
Dumplings of Fury opened in the former Quadrato space at 4302 SW Oregon Street. It's a project from the owners of West Seattle's upscale pub Shadowland.
