DUMPLINGS 餃子 [JIAO ZI] ARE SMALL CHINESE DOUGH WRAPPED FILLINGS OF MEAT, FISH AND VEGETABLES WHICH ARE MADE IN DIFFERENT FORMS. IN CHINA DUMPLINGS ARE TYPICALLY SERVED AT TEA TIME AND ARE PART OF A VARIATION OF SMALL BITE-SIZE PORTIONED MEALS – DIM SUM – WHICH TRANSLATES AS “TOUCH OF THE HEART”.
THE HYBRID CREATURE PENG 鵬 [PÉNG] FROM THE CHINESE MYTHOLOGY IS THE EPONYM OF OUR RESTAURANT. AS THIS CHIMERA MERGES FISH AND BIRD, LIKEWISE WE COMBINE ALL KIND OF INGREDIENTS INTO A VARIATION OF DELICIOUS DUMPLINGS.
OUR GASTRONOMIC PHILOSOPHY IS TO REINTERPRET THIS CLASSIC CHINESE TREAT WITH INFLUENCES OF THE INTERNATIONAL CUISINE. WHENEVER POSSIBLE WE USE REGIONAL AND BIOLOGICAL PRODUCTS. IN THE INTEREST OF SUSTAINABILITY AND THE VARIETY OF TASTE, OUR HANDMADE DUMPLINGS ARE PREPARED BASED ON SEASONAL PRODUCE.
