The Dump Truck, Portland Reviews - Write a Review
Giving it a three star. Would love to give it a five. I have eaten at this truck several times and while the product has a chance to be outstanding all of the time, who you get serving you determines what you get on your plate. Today my dumplings are half the normal size and the dough is completely uncooked. As someone who bakes often, I know exactly what the texture of uncooked dough looks and tastes like. Total disappointment. I knew when I saw them something was wrong. You could still see the flour on the dumplings and they were way too matte colored-not the same as when cooked. But I walked back to work anyway, staring at them the whole time trying to work out what I received. Now, here I am choking these things down cause I am desperately hungry. Chewy, sticky, and flour-y in some spots. Thank god the filling is A+ (mushroom filling /curry potato). The guy initially said they couldn't serve anything and it would be a 25 minute wait, then when he asked what I wanted...I told him...and then he said he could do something in 10. That should have been a red flag. My guess he threw something together and the cooker/steamer wasn't ready. I think he must be new. The cabbage mix blend on the bottom was sparse and the dumplings were overly dressed with the Tahini sauce...not to mention the dumplings were inconsistent in shape and size. I think he was just trying to please but sometime you gotta say NO in order to turn out a quality product..that is actually cooked...for your paying customer. Have had other experiences with other food truck staff here who are so busy trying to make small talk that they aren't paying attention to your order and then serve you wrong dumplings or sauce. Some of the staff are fantastic and get it perfect every time. That is the experience to hold out for. The food here is worth it (when done correctly and well) but I should have walked this particular order back so that part is on me.
Everyone at the truck was super nice and helpful. I got the sampler, two of each flavor. They were amazing! Even the cheeseburger ones I had low expectations for but tasted exactly like biting into a cheeseburger! Very delicious. I would absolutely go back again. Great prices too.
I have been making my dumplings for many years. My homemade dumplings are more juicy then theirs and more flavorful. their dumpling sauces are too thick. The cheese burger one is more tasty then the rest. and the cold vegs that they used, have they heard of Sesame peanut sauce? put some kind of sauce or dressing on them. $10 for 6 dumplings is way to much. If you want a excellent dumplings with lots flavors and homemade sauces, try Himalayan Dumplings & More, they going to be in Beaverton Night Market 7/22 5-10pm. That I call dumplings!!!
I went today on my 30-minute lunch break, put my order in, and it usually never takes long which is why I come to this cart! A walking tour group strolled up, ordered a massive amount of dumplings, and my order, including everyone else after me, got scrapped. We all got skipped, and were not served before this group. I've never had that happen to me anywhere before. Always serve first come first served! It was so incredibly rude and not well taken care of. Asked for a refund, and sad to say- I won't be back. Not a proper way to do business.
Good spot for a small bite or a full lunch of dumplings. The curry dumplings were insane, the texture and freshness of everything was perfect. I wish we had one of these in California!!
