Bryan’s Dumpling House

Today we celebrate a beloved delight that has ignited fervor in the hearts and taste buds of food enthusiasts worldwide – the humble yet extraordinary dumpling. While your thoughts might have swiftly gravitated towards the renowned Chinese dumpling, which debuted in gastronomic history around 225 AD, the story of dumplings predates even this ancient chapter.

In essence, a dumpling is a marriage of dough and delectable fillings, and if you pause for a moment, you’ll realize the abundance of examples. Think of the satisfying Italian ravioli, the savory South American empanada, the comforting Jewish Knish, and the mouthwatering Swedish Kroppkaka. The world, it seems, has embraced the dumpling in its myriad forms, with each culture crafting its unique rendition. So, on this National Dumpling Day, you have the world at your fingertips, ready to explore an atlas of flavors.

On our culinary voyage today, we go back to the continent of Asia, where dumplings reign supreme in their diverse forms. Picture a soft bun, delicate rice noodles, or the timeless starch-flour envelope. Are you drawn to the flavors of BBQ, pork, shrimp, or wholesome vegetarian delights? Personally, I can happily devour an entire bag of steamed shumai from H Mart on any given day. For our true epicurean adventurers among us, where fresher pastures await, we have prepared you a list of where to order savory dumplings in and around Denver.

At the heart of Mason’s Dumpling Shop lies rich family heritage, tracing its culinary roots back to the city of Shenyang, China, renowned for its time-honored dumpling tradition. In 2001, Alan Lam and Grace Li co-founded Luscious Dumpling in San Gabriel, California. Their passion for crafting exquisite dumplings ignited a culinary flame that has since been passed down through generations.

Michelle, their daughter, and Ker, their son-in-law, decided to leave behind their careers and embark on a shared mission – to carry forward the legacy of their family’s culinary artistry. They’ve expanded their culinary footprint to two thriving locations in Colorado. The name ‘Mason’ holds special significance, paying homage to Michelle and Ker’s own son, a symbol of the enduring generational connection to the art of dumpling making. At Mason’s, the tradition endures as they meticulously handcraft each dumpling from scratch every morning, ensuring that the tradition of creating dumplings thrives.
