Dumplings are the ultimate comfort food found in the cuisine of almost every country. They come in so many shapes, styles and varieties that they are incredibly hard to define, but incredibly easy to eat.

For Bánh Bôt Lọc, chewy tapioca dumplings with shrimp and pork belly, garnished with spring onions, crispy shallots and a side of fish sauce, head to Vietnamese restaurant Bánh Mi Très Bon. Pair that with the signature Vietnamese cocktail and you’ve got yourself a pretty sweet menu.
