It’s the restaurant we didn’t realize we required until the point when it came to Brampton. Green Bites Dumpling and Tea Bar is an excellent yet easygoing northern Chinese eatery on Resolution Drive (near Steeles and Kennedy) by Lowe’s Home Improvement.
When you walk in, the roof is canvassed in great wicker lights, and many shelves of luxurious imported tea sets decorate the right wall. The right wall is embellished with rolling pins, generally used to level the dumpling pastry. All around are completely blossomed purple and white orchids and photographic art by the owners. The restaurant is peaceful and elegant.
Green Bites Dumpling and Tea Bar was a two-year venture that finally came to fruition in July thanks to David and Vicky Liu. Vicky is initially from Shanghai though David from Montreal, the city where they both met.
He dreamed for opening a restaurant, and in doing as such, the match traveled to California to meet David’s brother, a long-term chef whose restaurant has been working for a long time. They trained and studied his recipes thoroughly, and brought them back to Canada.
The way the restaurant works –order at the counter and sit down. As it is a tea house, the teas ($2.95) are on the whole Chinese classics – Spring Green, Dragon Well, Wuyishan Black, and others. The Iron Buddha tea (Tieguanyin) is a refreshing oolong tea with floral and fruity notes from the rugged reason of Anxi.
Green Bites Dumpling offers five sorts of dumplings, six to a plate. The shrimp dumpling ($7.95) is most prominent – a full shrimp within, sitting alongside a round piece of ground pork and napa cabbage. Outside, the dumpling looks standard, albeit slightly bigger than normal. Inside, the filling is new – the juiciest meat, to the point of addressing if the dumplings are a combination of meat and soup dumpling (they aren’t).
While the menu has lunch combos ($7.95 – that’s a great price) and dishes, for example, egg drop soup, basil fish, and grilled chicken in black pepper sauce, the two “Green Bites Must Order” dishes are Crispy Spicy Chicken Wings ($6.95) and Crispy Spicy Tempura Veggies ($6.95).
Indeed, the chicken wings are crispy and slightly spicy. A thin layer of digging covered the wing (we asked Vicky, but the recipe is a secret), and it was deep fried, topped with little bits of minced garlic, jalapeno, onion, and fried basil. The wings pack in an unbalanced measure of flavor, they are cooked flawlessly, and it’s understandable why this is on the “Must Order” list. This is likewise presented with “Dragon Sauce,” which is a mix of soya sauce, red chilies, scallion, coriander, and garlic, among different flavors.
Green Bites Dumpling has completed an outstanding job in exploring flavor palettes and improving the Chinese food culture in Brampton. This restaurant is worth experiencing for its innovation in flavor.
Green Bites Dumpling and Tea Bar is situated at 35 Resolution Dr #10, by Steeles and Kennedy. The restaurant is open each day from 11 AM to 9 PM. Follow them on Instagram here.
