Popular Chinatown Chefs Peter Wang and Chef Chen are pleased to announce the opening of Dumpling Palace, a sister restaurant to the award-winning Dumpling Cafe in Boston's famed Chinatown. A one million dollar investment and makeover at the 179 Massachusetts Avenue (across from the new $100 million dollar Berklee School of Music Tower) location make this a new approachable authentic Chinese Cuisine with a Taiwanese Twist a Back Bay destination.

Dumpling Palace will serve fresh dumplings, Taiwanese specialties and regional dishes from various areas of China. Dumpling Palace features a glassed-in dumpling station, which allows patrons to watch their dinner being prepared and allows the kitchen at this location to offer even more dumpling selections. Like Dumpling Cafe, all Dumpling Palace dumplings are made in-house daily, by devoted dumpling experts. The new location was designed ceiling-to-floor, front-of-the-house to the state-of-the-art kitchen by the owners. The result is sleek urbane oasis with rich reds, grays and tile floors. Dumpling Palace seats about 48 people.

"We are so happy that Bostonians embraced the Dumpling Cafe in Chinatown and with that success we wanted to bring the restaurant to the Back Bay," Dumpling Cafe now has a royal sister, Dumpling Palace!" says Chef Wang.

Dumpling Palace offers exceptional, yet approachable Chinese and Taiwanese fare that is sure to bring patrons back for more. Taking a refreshing approach to their cuisine, like Dumpling Cafe, Dumpling Palace's menu features a variety of dumplings, including their award-wining mini-steam buns with pork, also known as soup dumplings or Xiao Long Bao. Appetizers include Oyster Pancakes (popularly referred to as Chinese Pizza) and Scallion Pancakes as well as authentic options such as Grilled Duck Tongues Taiwan style, Chilled Jellyfish with Garlic and Preserved Egg with Chilled Tofu. Dumpling Palace also features noodle dishes, including the already popular Beef Stew Noodles Soup with Spinach.

Chef Wang was born in Fujian, China and his family moved to Taiwan when he was 10 years old. After graduating from the Chinese Culinary School, Chef Wang worked at the prestigious Grand Hotel in Taipei, before moving to the U.S. in 1993. Chef Wang worked in New York, prior to moving to Boston and opened Taiwan Cafe in 1998. Due to the success of Taiwan Cafe and his desire to open a restaurant that combined both the Taiwan and Chinese cooking styles, Chef Wang decided to open the Dumpling Cafe in the heart of Chinatown. Dumpling Palace is the third Boston restaurant from Chef/Owner Peter Wang, also of the widely popular Taiwan Cafe with Chef Chen.

Dumpling Palace is open seven days a week from 11:00 am to 3:00 am and is located at 179 Massachusetts Avenue in Boston's Back Bay.
