In New York City, you can turn any corner and discover a new cuisine or culture. The city is inspired by a mix of traditions that are ever evolving yet authentic and that is what we love about it. We aim to convey that excitement through delicious food, using traditional Asian styles to deliver a new culinary experience. We think dumplings are the perfect vessel for that delectable exploration. Delicate dough surrounding a heaping mound of savory filling, you can steam, pan-sear or add them into soup for a unique and inspired meal in 5 minutes. Our distinctive flavors make each bite a journey for your taste buds.

Chef One was founded by Chinese Americans in 1999, and currently operates in a former brewery in Bushwick Brooklyn. With the initial focus on the food service sector, our noodles and dumplings are proudly served in some of New York’s finest restaurants. Our newest mission is to introduce more Americans to this amazing food, and we will achieve that by bringing them into all the best grocery stores and markets.


We produce 44,000 dumplings per hour in our Bushwick factory using only fresh ingredients with no artificial flavors. Each dumpling is checked and ensured to taste and look great when it reaches your home. We believe there is a chef in everyone and picking up a bag of Chef One dumplings means a delicious meal is awaiting your creativity. Whether you eat them dipped in soy sauce, stewed in your favorite broth, or baked into a new creation, preparation is always easy and the flavor never fails.
