A’e Dumplings is named after its owner – the lady who developed what was once a humble street stall into what is now a recognised quality establishment in Taipei. It’s cordial, simple and genuine, just like the dumplings that are served by A’e – they might look ordinary, but they definitely taste extraordinary.
Each dumpling is handmade daily and stuffed with a generous filling of Asian chives, whole prawns and pork mince in a flavour combination that is set to conquer taste buds in Taipei. They don’t look huge, but they have the perfect vegetable- to-meat ratio which never fails to deliver a mouthful of juicy savoury goodness.If you’re dining alone, the perfect combo is to order a single portion of dumplings and a small bowl of hot and sour soup. For social eaters, feel free to take your pick from the myriad of tasty side dishes from the fridge (prices are conveniently marked on the menu), perfect forsharing with friends.
At NT$ 6 each, A’e’s dumplings are the perfect crowd-pleaser. Be sure to visit during the week as the store closes on weekends.
