Our Story

The Li’l Dumpling Van was born in February 2020, just before the lockdowns hit, and was initially planned to serve up dumplings mobile style at festivals and events. However, as the lockdown loomed, The Li’l Dumpling Van had to adapt and began offering home delivery of frozen varieties to fill that dumpling shape void in your life.

Once lockdowns finished, The Li’l Dumpling Van went back to serving up freshly cooked dumplings from our dumplings mobile style from the van and truck (our second mobile offering!) at festivals and events across Geelong, Melbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo, and other regional Victorian areas!

The Li’l Dumpling Van has attended events such as Beyond the Valley, A Day on the Green, AFL Footy Finals Food Festival, F1, Avalon Airshow, Geelong Motoring Revival, Pako Festa, Queen Victoria Market, and Deakin University Open Days.
