Hong Kong Tuna Dumplings is a small restaurant you can find at Namsung Sagye Market. The name of the establishment clearly indicates that they specialize in a menu featuring Hong Kong-style tuna dumplings.

Upon visiting the actual store, you’ll see a prominent sign that reads “홍콩참치만두” (Hong Kong Tuna Dumplings) with the phone number written below.

“You Can Find a Variety of Menus, Including Tuna Dishes, at This Restaurant”

Looking at the menu, you can find a variety of dumplings and other dishes, including tuna dumplings. Since they specialize in tuna dumplings, I naturally wanted to try them. However, on this day, I was on a brief business trip and needed a quick meal, so I confirmed that they had tuna dumplings on the menu but ended up ordering egg fried rice.

“Egg Fried Rice: 7,000 KRW”

The egg fried rice came with simple side dishes and cost 7,000 KRW. It was evident that there was plenty of egg in it.

Come to think of it, I’ve never ordered fried rice in Hong Kong, though I did try it once in Macau. Of course, it’s challenging to compare it with eating it locally, but trying Hong Kong-style fried rice at “Hong Kong Tuna Dumplings” had its significance.

Although it’s fried rice, it wasn’t overly greasy, allowing for a comfortable and satisfying meal.

“A Small Venue”

The venue is really small, with only about three tables, making it a bit challenging to accommodate many guests at once. Most likely, most people who visit might opt for takeout.

While you can find many dumpling shops everywhere, “Tuna Dumplings” made in Hong Kong style aren’t easily found, so this place can be considered quite special.
