The Chirba Chirba Dumpling Story
Once upon a time, there were 4 friends who loved to make and eat dumplings.
After many trips to foreign lands where much delicious street food was discovered (and eaten), the 4 friends decided to bring their favorite dumplings to the streets to share with all from a food truck. Late night dumpling pleating parties have turned into inventive taste-testing and dumpling folding sessions at The Cookery. You can see photos of how Chirba dumplings are made!

What does “Chirba Chirba” mean?
“Chirba Chirba” literally means “Eat eat!” in Mandarin Chinese when you’re speaking to another person. However the expression embodies a very warm, hospitable feeling when uttered, especially to a friend or guest. In an attempt to communicate the intensity of warmth of “Chirba!”, one might translate it as: “This is so delicious and it makes me extremely happy to see you enjoy it without hesitation, so please, eat!”
