Dumpling House, which can be found on 129 E St. and at the Farmers Market in Davis, was voted as the best Farmers Market food truck with 46.6% of the vote in this year’s Best of Davis.

“The food is really good,” customer AloraDannin Gardner said. “I typically get the handmade dumplings, and the customer service is usually so polite.”

The menu for Dumpling House features a variety of dumplings with fillings like pork and chive, kimchi and shrimp. 

“They all sell very well and they’re all special,” said Linda Liu, the owner of Dumpling House. “The pork and chive is very popular.”

The E Street location reopened on Jan. 25 of this year following a fire, which spread from a building next door. 

“We took a long time because of the pandemic, and it took a long time to get all sorts of permits,” Liu said. “All the customers have been waiting a long time, so every time we open there’s a long line.”

The menu also features fish and chips, which pays homage to London Fish N’ Chips — the restaurant that the location previously housed.

“London Fish N’ Chips is a landmark,” Liu said. “We kept the recipe for the fish and chips.”

Longtime customer Kevin Bodary shared that he typically orders the fish and chips.

“I’ve been coming here since before it was the Dumpling House,” Bodary said. “You have big portions, and it’s well done and even now it’s the same as it always has been. You get what you pay for.”
