DES MOINES misses you so much!
Recently ordered several of their dumplings. Very good food.
Is there a link for gift card purchases to support during the isolation?
All the posts were taken down about being closed last week but the last one I saw said you'd be open January 8th and the store is closed. When is the actual opening date?
Thank you so much for keeping us safe during the tornado warning tonight and for a delicious meal! Staff was awesome!!

Your food always looks amazing! I can’t believe I hadn’t thought to mention this sooner. You should try maultaschen (German Swabian style dumpling)! My mom ( Barb Blount ) is the best German cook and her German “ravioli” is amazing. She should give you pointers 😉It’s actually served around Easter and has a fun backstory.

Globally-inspired dumplings & street food with a Midwest twist

The bad news is that our fridge went down and we will be closed for dinner this evening. But the good news is that we are getting it fixed and will be open for lunch on Wednesday.
