Treasured East Dallas dumpling restaurant opens convenient spinoff
The Hill, the Dallas mixed-use retail and restaurant development at Walnut Hill Lane and US-75, has signed on five new tenants, including the second location of a treasured East Dallas dumpling shop.
Hello Dumpling, which debuted in 2017 in the former Good 2 Go Taco space at 1146 Peavy Rd., will open a spinoff at The Hill.
Hello Dumpling is from June Chow, who wanted to bring an interesting Asian restaurant to East Dallas, which had been a virtual Interesting Asian Restaurant Desert before Hello came long.
Chow came from a restaurant family and grew up eating dumplings; her mother is from northern China. The restaurant does dumplings, but also monthly specials. For July, they're featuring two noodle dishes: one topped with a crispy panko covered pork chop and Chinese greens, and the other topped with crispy lentil tofu and Chinese greens.
The dumpling restaurant will be joined at The Hill by four other new businesses including:
- F45 Training, a group workout spot
- Kibble Pet Grooming
- Pop Factory, artisanal popsicles
- Shine Hot Pilates + Sculpt, a fitness studio featuring hot mat pilates and hot sculpt
All are set to open by the end of 2019. They'll join two other previously announced tenants coming soon including Casa Verona, a full-service restaurant offering a unique menu that combines Greek and Italian cuisines, and Hiatus Spa + Retreat.
The Hill's already extensive list of restaurants and retail options include Bellagreen, Civil Pour, Hat Creek Burger, Sauce Pizza, Tacodeli, Snooze an AM Eatery, and Nazca Kitchen, which was there before The Hill came along.
This is the same vaguely Lake Highlands-y center at 8041 Walnut Hill Ln. that's currently home to Candytopia, the candy-themed pop-up from Los Angeles, which will be at The Hill through September 2.
