Mouth-watering, handmade, soft and chewy pockets of perfection are available in assorted varieties for delivery in Liberty Village! There is just something irresistible about dumplings. It could be the delicious fillings that provide a yummy bonus to an already delicious exterior. Perhaps it’s their perfect bite-size sumptuousness. Maybe it’s that they’re the ideal combination of all those things, making them great treats that are just the right size and explode with just the right amounts of flavour. Whatever the magic formula, Steambox Dumplings in Liberty Village has undeniably mastered it!

Open for just over a year now, Steambox Dumplings is the brainchild of founder Kayeon, whose passion for cooking led her from her previous 9-5 job to her new role as Liberty Village’s dumpling guru. That’s one yummy job title!

For years, Kayeon would host private dumpling parties, preparing fillings ahead of time and laying out wrappers for friends to “make your own” delicious dumplings. These sessions grew until they became something of an event among friends and neighbours. We’ve got to say, hanging out with friends and making dumplings that you then get to enjoy is a really fun and fabulous idea! After more than ten years, the time came to make these private events a full time business.

Steambox Dumplings offers a range of menu items. Dumplings can be ordered frozen (at a cost of $12 per dozen) and come in the following assortment of yumminess:

Shrimp

Korean Chicken

Veggie

Pork

Kimchi Bacon

Yam Chipotle

Beef n’ Basil

Cheddar Ragu

You can also order their equally delicious sauces to complement them: the aptly named, crack sauce, and their bomb sauce available at $2 for small sizes and $5 for the large.

Steambox Dumplings also offers a larger, catering menu according to client needs and the occasion. Talk about convenience! Options for catering include hot dumplings, priced at 3 for $5, a host of delicious salads, vegan noodles, chicken and meat dishes and, recently they worked out a recipe for creating the perfect gluten free dumpling!
