After establishing itself as Samyan’s friendly neighborhood dumpling spot, Jiaozi is extending its reach to Gaysorn Amarin—bringing fan-favorite signature dishes and adding cocktails to the mix.

Keeping with Gaysorn Amarin’s iconic Grecian-style columns, the interior leans into semi-European and contemporary east Asian influences. The multi-colored tables are custom made from recycled materials such as plastic and coffee grounds.

Their original Peking-style yin yang dumplings (B155) have a thicker dough to hold the weighty, generous amount of fillings inside. The dark (almost black) dumplings are mushroom flavored while the light-colored ones hold a mixture of pork, garlic, cabbage, and ginger to keep things light.

These flavors make a return throughout the menu with hits like the black truffle cream dumplings (B195) that feature charcoal mushroom gyoza in a pool of white sauce that resembles the flavors of a carbonara with truffles and grated parmesan on top.

The restaurant goes into full fusion mode with the likes of the uni-yuzu shrimp dumplings (B395), which use a thinner type of wrapper, letting the richness of the uni and yuzu glaze shine through.

Though dumplings are the star of the show here, Jiaozi Jiuba also serves other classic eats to go with its cocktails, such as crispy tofu, stir fried string beans, and hot soupy dishes like buk kaew teh.

With this new location, Jiaozi aims to keep the family-style dining it's known for while adding a couple of cocktails to greet the after work crowd—hence the “Jiuba” (bar or saloon) at the end of the name. 
Start your drinking session with the Hutong Bay (B328). The fruity drink has the sweet and sour notes of a pina colada but bay leaves and mala powder on the rim adds spicy and aromatic flavors to help cut through the sugar nicely.

The Lucky Mao Tai (B348) on the other hand, is the kind of drink that can sneak up on you. Because the base flavors are similar to sweet floral tea, and contains cream cheese inside, the cocktail tastes like a deceptively harmless dessert. Be warned, there’s also Niam Moutai in the mix—a famously strong liquor from China—so tread carefully.
