Ravioli Chinois Nord-Est does what it says on the can: raviolis, or dumplings for the anglo-inclined.
And it is cheap. 10 dumplings will set you back little more than €5 per plate, sides like dried beef or pickled vegetables will set you back an additional €2.50. Tsingtao is sold at Dia prices.
Steamed, grilled or submerged in soup, there are 10+ varieties on the menu at any given time. Our favourites are the beef/celery or the prawn/chive, made on the premises by the husband/wife team.
But don’t let the price put you off. The dumplings are fresh and the service is snappy. The tiny room contains little more than five tables, so don’t leave it too late. By 8.30pm you will be waiting amongst a small crowd.
Impress fellow hipsters: for €20 you can get 100 dumplings take away, to steam up at home
