HOT: Éclair Affair High Tea, Lobby Lounge, The Westin Melbourne, 250 Collins St, Melbourne

Melbourne offers a high tea option for just about every sweet desire and The Westin Melbourne has just launched an afternoon tea service which pays homage to buttery, fluffy, choux pastry – it’s an Eclair Affair!

HOT: Charlie Dumpling, 184 High St, Prahran

In a former life I used to live around High Street Prahran and there was not much going on there – a dry cleaner, a stationery store,  some furniture shops.

Everyone has their own favourite yum cha destinations. I’m usually a fan of Shark Fin House and Golden Dragon Palace – and now I think they’re both topped by my recent visit to Tao Tao House.  Tao Tao House came recommended via my (Chinese) parents’ (Chinese) friends – the Chinese expat grapevine is a great source […]
