Lumi Empanada & Dumpling Kitchen - CLOSED
Dallas, TX 75204
Dallas Observer's Description
Part Asia, part Brazil and all laid-back Uptown cool. The food is inspired by two continents, but it is common fare: feijoada (the meaty Brazilian stew), a mound of fried rice flecked with blue crab that you can't stop eating, spring rolls and such. The caipirinha cocktails are difficult to put down, as well. Parking can be a problem.
Tips from foursquare
Combining Brazilian & Vietnamese fare may sound like serious culinary dissonance to anyone who hasn't eaten Lumi's spicy, savory pockets of flavorful meat or tapas-style entrees. [Eater 38 Member]
Pan seared duck and leek dumplings = crack
Get the cilantro & jalapeño shrimp roll. It's not too spicy and the dipping sauce is delish!
My wife and I love it here, but watch out for the curry-chicken dumplings, they have strange mushrooms in them.
service can be questionable but the food isn't. thumbs up to the asparagus soup.
