Westport’s new Minor Dumpling Home ghost kitchen open for takeout

Charlie Gilhuly, who opened Grammie’s Donuts & Biscuits in the Publish Road space in mid-February, has followed up with Very little Dumpling House. He launched the Asian-impressed takeout menu, with dishes like dumplings, rangoons, fried rice, noodles and sushi bowls, in mid-July.

“This menu is seriously, actually strong, chef-pushed food items to go, and it definitely hits the Asian takeout itch,” he mentioned. 

Gilhuly experienced been looking at other menus and concepts for the house and made a decision to go forward with the Asian-type fare. He is functioning with his spouse, Molly Healey, an experienced chef who joined the kitchen area right after leaving her job with Westport’s Manna Toast.

As ghost kitchen principles, neither Grammie’s or Very little Dumpling Household provide dine-in services. Even though Grammie’s delivers shipping as a result of Grubhub, the Dumpling menu is pickup only at the minute, Gilhuly mentioned. Pickups are obtainable Thursday via Sunday from 4 to 9 p.m., with wanted time slots on a initially-arrive, very first-serve basis.

The menu features shumai, potstickers and Szechuan dumplings with rooster or pork filling to start off, sunomono, or vinegar-pickled cucumber duck wonton soup and rangoons that go over and above just crab, with caramelized onion or mushroom filling. Other veggie-centric solutions include carrot ginger and cabbage salads, mushroom fried rice, cold soba noodles with shaved veggies and seasonal fruit, and charred broccoli.

Much larger plates contain chicken katsu, with crispy-fried rooster breast, sushi rice and sesame slaw, miso-glazed Atlantic cod and a create-your-have duck buns selection with steamed bao, crispy duck breast, housemade plum sauce and sunomono. Sushi bowls are topped with lobster salad, marinated bluefin tuna, hamachi or shiitake mushrooms. A kids’ box consists of rooster katsu, chicken potstickers, fried rice, Chinese five-spice doughnut holes and blueberries.

The menu also capabilities kits ($55 to $65) for much larger meals, comprising quite a few items. A household food package provides two kids’ packing containers and food items for mom and dad: cabbage salad, bluefin sushi bowl, rangoons, potstickers and doughnut holes. A date-night time kit features a shareable three-class menu with sushi bowls, shumai, duck buns and a matcha cronut. A “balanced evening meal” kit spotlights vegetable dishes and the miso-glazed cod.

Very little Dumpling House is at 971 Submit Highway East in Westport. 203-557-8789, dumplinghousegfc.com.
