Free dumplings were a Sunday arvo treat at Lok Lok Dumpling Bar Macquarie Centre from 3:30- 5:30pm on June 29, 2014.
“Lok Lok Dumpling Bar is a trendy eatery aimed at transporting customers to the land of tasty, healthy, hand crafted dumplings made with only the best ingredients. Our delightful menus offer a variety of classic choices with seasonal flavour, including a range of Asian dishes not limited to dumplings.”
Over the next 6 months we all know that Macquarie Centre will be full of new openings and with exciting stores, there will be exciting specials. On Sunday I stumbled upon this joint and their free dumplings made my day.
There was a massive banner at the front so you could not miss it. I think a lot of people just walk past fantastic things like this and miss you! Be aware of your surroundings!
Two girls in bright blue tops were giving away coupons. Present it at the counter and voila!
Right behind me there was a stations it’s chilli oil, vinegar and soya sauce and of course the chopsticks, forks and chopsticks! I love the wooden setting.
Surprisingly they’ve managed to put quite a bit of seating in the area. At the front there was a little bar..
On the side you’ll get a tad of greenery..
And closer to Event Cinemas, there are some wooden looking tables and chairs.
I grabbed a seat and realised that the menu at the top didn’t have any names or descriptions. The prices and food looked like it was straight from a Chinese restaurant but I’m quite worried about those with food allergies..
The dumplings were yum! I first bit into the vegetable one and that had a nice filling. It wasn’t too salty which I think most dumplings bar try to do with the veggies, assuming that it lacks flavour.
The chicken one was neater and combined with the sweet vinegar sauce, it was very delightful! I think it’s usually $5.80 for 5.
Thank you Lok Lok Dumpling for the little samples. Keen to try the rest!! Are there any lunch or dinner specials?
Rating Review: =D =) =| =(
Product (dumplings at Lok Lok Dumpling Macquarie Centre): =)
Would I recommend going to Lok Lok Dumpling Bar to friend? If you want a light meal, then by all means go for it but it isn’t that cheap. Most of their dishes are over $10 but if you’re sharing plates with a group of friends then it could be an option.
Highlight: the vinegar sauce on the dumplings. It dumplings itself were pretty average but the sweetness of the vinegar made it jump! I also quite like e setting. In Hornsby, the food court option is nothing exciting but the one at Macquarie Centre has seating, more spacious and adds character.
Suggestion of improvement: I only just realised that students at Macquarie university get 10% off if you spend over $10 at the newly renovated Woolworths. Some sort of deal will make it stand out and who doesn’t love dumplings?
