J.G Dumpling Restaurant

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.

Monash City Council reports that in August 2010 JG Dumpling Glen Waverley got slapped with a $100,000 fine for repeatedly refusing to comply with orders to clean up the state of the food preparation and cleanliness of the kitchen with evidence of contamination and raw food being stored on the floor and near/on mop buckets etc. As part of their penance they will have their name listed for 12 months on the "unsanitory eating list" that Melbourne has set up to disclose which restaurants in Victoria have been fined. Because of this, they just this week have undergone a total rennovation and changed their name to "First Choice Dumplings".
