dumpling 🥟

The Dumpling emoji belongs to the group of food emojis like the Tamale emoji and the Hot Dog emoji, which include tasty foods from all over the world. The dumpling emoji is designed to look very similar to an actual dumpling. This includes the pale fleshy color and the way it is wrapped together.

Dumplings are a famous dish eaten all over the world but it originated in Asia. The Chinese have been enjoying dumplings for almost 2,000 years. Japanese people consume a type of dumpling called gyoza, which is more recent compared to the original dumplings.

Because of its Asian origins, the dumpling emoji is almost always a symbol of Chinese culture, the specific birthplace of the dumpling. When celebrating the Chinese New Year, the Chinese often eat boiled dumplings. It is appropriate to place the dumpling with the Red Envelope emoji, Fireworks emoji and the animal emojis representing the zodiac of the year to describe celebrating the lunar new year. Placing the emoji dumpling with the Chopsticks emoji represent that you are currently enjoying dumplings.

Another interesting use of the emoji dumpling is to substitute it as an empanada emoji. While the two are very different types of food that come from different cultures, the empanada has a similar body to a dumpling. Since there is no empanada emoji as of writing, many people use this emoji as the empanada and further add it with the Spain Flag emoji, Portugal Flag emoji, or Mexico Flag emoji. It can also be emphasized with other food emojis that comes from the same origins as the empanada, like the Burrito emoji.

🥟 Dumpling is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 10.0 which was introduced in 2017, and was added to Emoji 5.0.
