When you hear dumplings, your mind probably goes to the ones you binged on during dim sum brunch over the weekend. But Stuff’d serves Eastern European-style dumplings, which are small and boiled, and which you can eat a dozen of and still return to the office not needing to take a nap under your desk. Service at their bright Melrose space is quick and efficient and every dumpling plate runs in the $6-$8 range. Our favorites right now are the Hot Chicken with Thai coconut curry and the Notorious P.I.G. (pork, cabbage, and purple potato puree). Everything is also gluten-free.
Stuff’d is permanently closed.
