New Chinese dumpling restaurant to open in Springfield this summer

A new Chinese restaurant specializing in dumplings is coming to Springfield this summer.

New Jersey-based chain Ugly Dumpling told FFXnow it is looking to open its first eatery in Virginia sometime this summer next to Taco Bamba at 6691-F Backlick Road near Springfield Town Center.

FFXnow noticed construction activity inside the space during a visit to the site yesterday (Monday).

Originating from Edison, New Jersey, Ugly Dumpling opened its inaugural restaurant in August 2023. In less than a year, it has swiftly expanded and established eight additional outlets across the U.S., with five in New Jersey, three in Maryland and one in Texas, according to the company’s website.

“Ugly Dumpling pays homage to the centuries-old cooking techniques of Shanghai while cultivating an experience that’s exciting to today’s modern palette,” a restaurant spokesperson told FFXnow.

Ugly Dumpling prides itself on its signature dish, xiao long bao — a Shanghai specialty known for its rich, savory soup broth encased in delicate dumplings.

The menu also features a variety of dim sum, wontons and traditional noodle and wok dishes, each with a unique spin. Complementing these main offerings are traditional Shanghai appetizers and greens, such as soy garlic chicken wings, scallion pancake, and bok choy with scallion-infused oil. Additionally, there is an sizable selection of teas and lattes available.

Upon its opening, the restaurant will offer combo specials, boba tea specials, and sampler offerings, according to the spokesperson.
