Dumpling Kingdom Is Opening in Allston
A new Asian restaurant that features dumplings is opening in Allston, and it is apparently connected to a couple of other dining spots in Boston's Back Bay and Chinatown.
According to a source, Dumpling Kingdom has soft-opened on Harvard Avenue, with the eatery moving into the space where Asiana had been. Our source says that the new restaurant comes from the people behind Dumpling Palace on Mass. Ave. and Dumpling Cafe on Washington Street, and this appears to be confirmed on the Bizapedia site, as a page for one of the owners of Dumpling Kingdom (Zeng Qi Liu) also lists those two dining spots.
It appears that the soft opening for Dumpling Kingdom continues today, with the grand opening possibly coming tomorrow, according to our source.
The address for this new Asian eatery in Allston is: Dumpling Kingdom, 137 Harvard Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134.
