Eater has learned that Clapton’s My Neighbour the Dumplings will open a second restaurant on Victoria Park Road in east London this summer.

It is thought the restaurant — which is among the most popular in the hip Hackney neighbourhood home to P. Franco, and the Babybel deep-friers Les Nenettes — will take the place of now-closed Fayre Share, next door to the coffee shop and wine bar, Balcone.

In a 2016 review critic Marina O’Loughlin, then writing for the Guardian, awarded the restaurant 7/10 for food, 7/10 for atmosphere, and 9/10 on value for money. “It’s every bit as cool-kid as its location suggests, but the food is worth it,” she wrote.

About the dumplings, O’Loughlin said: “Their hand-crafted dumplings are beautiful enough to frame: classic har gau with a delicate, tensile wrapper, the prawns inside sweetly fresh, almost crunchy...Potstickers are stuffed with lamb Mongolian-style, or woodsy mushroom and courgette. All are perfectly peachy.”

More soon.
