INSIDE WORD

DUMPLING DELAY

File under "curses"; we jumped the gun and the wait for enjoying a beer alongside some delicious dumplings from Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar (man, we are HANGING. OUT. for this) will be just a bit longer – their new venue in Lichfield Street will be opening in August. But  in the meantime you can still get your dumpling fix as required at their flagship outfit at The Colombo!
