Whether you like your dumpling sweet or savoury, we got you covered
Similar to presents on Christmas mornings and red packets during the Lunar New Year festivities, Dragon Boat Festival's bamboo leaves-wrapped rice dumplings share the common practice of swift, greedy fingers, unraveling treasures that are hidden under wrappings.
With our hearts still aching at the thought of the food wastage amounted from staying true to a folklore (apparently, dumplings were dumped into a river to prevent sea creatures from consuming a tragic poet), we gladly embraced the age-old Dragon Boat Festival by indulging in these rice dumplings in the comforts of restaurants or homes.
On that note, we sussed out eight places selling some of the best dumplings in Singapore, so that you can soon get in on the festivities!
