When something is working so well, why not attempt to replicate that success? Hell, why not set up shop in that territory to lure customers, or mop up the scraps (i.e. those without patience at Bob’s)?
J.G Dumpling has been around for quite awhile now in Glenny, and opened up after the extremely popular Bob’s Kitchen. Based on reports by N, Y, W, T in the first two months of opening, it seemed that it wouldn’t be around for too long. Well it’s kicking on strong, especially come dinner time so it must be doing something right.
Scanning the menu, it’s pretty much Bob’s with a few additions and subtractions but the heart of it is there with soup noodles, noodles and of course dumplings. Beef brisket soup noodles tasty enough with large chunks of tender meat. Pork dumplings aren’t too bad either, nicely fried and coloured bases, meat is moist and well seasoned but the casings felt a touch more floury dry than Bob’s.
If I had to choose, I’d rather eat at Bob’s. But given that it hasn’t done anything really bad to embarrass itself, it’s a pretty good backup plan.
