the verdict

Beer. Dumplings. Repeat. Beer. Dumplings. Repeat. You remember the hype from back in November—Redfern’s Happy D’s has finally landed, bringing with it the ultimate combination. 

This hole in the wall is run by the dream mother-and-son team Andrew and Debra Watts; one’s in the bar, the other is in the kitchen. The menu has pretty much every dumpling you can imagine, as well as a weekly special that leans towards the more creative side.
As for the booze; Asahi (obviously) is flowing loud and proud, as well as Japanese craft beers, Japanese whisky and sake, along with a couple of cocktails. The wine list is short and sweet, but when it comes to dumplings, what more could you ask for.
A bright red bar and bare-brick walls showcase the low key and effortlessly cool vibe of this soon-to-be Redfern local—simple and finger licking good.
