University District Lands New Dumpling Destination in Little Kitchen

And it’s really darn cheap

CJ B./Yelp

The University District has a new-family run dumpling spot in Little Kitchen, open just a matter of days on University Way.

The Seattle Times has an early look at the casual Chinese spot, which has a connection to reborn International District bar Dynasty Room — it’s run by the parents of that bar’s new owner, I-Miun Liu.

While it’s not all dumplings, those meat-filled pockets seem to be a main drawcard, with Shandong-style boiled dumplings, steamed or pan-fried potstickers, and dumpling-adjacent spicy pork wontons. Otherwise, there’s garlicky Shandong roasted chicken, a fried chicken option, sweet and sour pork, and fried short ribs, also sweet and sour.

For noodles, it seems the Times recommends the cold peanut butter option; there’s also Zha Jiang Mian, a northern-style dish of wheaty noodles with a fermented soybean sauce, as well as beef and wonton soup options. Major bonus: pretty much everything comes in under $9 a serve, with dumplings at just $5 a serve.

Little Kitchen is open at 4508 University Way NE from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday to Friday.
