Xuxu Dumpling & Bar

Cocktails, Dumplings and Dessert.

Three of my favourite things. And three things that you will find at Xuxu Dumpling & Bar, making it one of my favourite eateries in the city.

I have been frequenting Xuxu numerous times over the years, and each time, I struggle to find something negative to say about it. The service is consistently good, their cocktails and food are fantastic and the atmosphere is always buzzing.

Xuxu also serves one of my favourite drinks in the CBD – a virgin passionfruit mojito. It is sweet, refreshing and the perfect accompaniment to plates of never ending dumplings. They also have a great cocktail list, along with a selection of beer, wine and cider.

But, the main stand out is of course, their handmade dumplings. They are light, full of flavour and trust me, you will want to order one of everything! My favourites include the Prawn Har Gao (with ginger, onion and garlic), Chicken potstickers (fried dumplings with shiitake mushroom), Beef & Cabbage (with onion, ginger and garlic) and for extras, their sticky and spicy Pork Steamed Buns.

And don’t leave without trying their dessert dumplings. There are two options – custard apple or banoffee, my favourite being the latter. What could be more satisfying then soft banana and a rich oozing caramel sauce inside a dumpling? Absolutely nothing.

Xuxu, in my view, is one of Auckland’s hidden gems. Head here for pre-dinner cocktails, a dumpling feast or for something sweet to end a fabulous night.
