HOT: 1+1 Dumpling Noodles, 84 Hopkins St, Footscray

Dumplings + Noodles = my favourite two carb-loading Chinese dishes. And at 1 +1 Dumpling Noodles you can order not only dumplings and noodles but lots of other interesting Xinjiang food, a far cry from your run-of-the-mill Cantonese food that often labelled as ‘Chinese’ food in Australia as if it was one huge, homogenous cuisine. […]

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. Well, the corner around High Street and Chapel Street has been revamped to become a cool eating and drinking precinct. The latest addition to the […]

HOT: Laksa King, 6-12 Pin Oak Crescent, Flemington

In my daily life I don’t have much cause to go to Flemington…except to visit Laksa King. If a place hangs its shingle on a single dish, then you’d better believe that the laksa at Laksa King is outstanding. And while the menu boasts 120+ items of Malaysian and Chinese food, the must-have dish is definitely […]

HOT: David’s Restaurant, 4 Cecil Place, Prahran

Melbourne’s Lunar New Year festivities are still happening this week so this weekend is a good opportunity to sneak in a last Chinese New Year feast at David’s Prahran. This bustling ‘Country Shanghai’ Chinese restaurant has great value sharing menus which are perfect for groups of diners and eliminates the need to make difficult decisions […]

HOT: Lee Ho Fook, 92 Smith St, Collingwood

Happy Year of the Horse! Celebrate Chinese New Year at possibly the hottest Chinese restaurant in Melbourne at the moment - Lee Ho Fook. When Lee Ho Fook opened in October last year expectations were high as the head chef, Victor Liong, had previously worked at Marque and Mr Wong. Now that the initial hype has died down the small one […]

HOT: Tao Tao House, 815 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn

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 […]

HOT: Opening Weekend, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2013

The weather gods looked benevolently on Melbourne on the weekend as people celebrated food and wine as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. Rather than bombarding you with a load of posts at once, here’s a potted summary of my HOTs and NOTs over a packed weekend of wining and dining. Some of […]

HOT: ShanDong MaMa, Shop 7, Mid City Arcade, 200 Bourke St, Melbourne

Dumplings, dumplings, dumplings – Melburnians just can’t get enough of them. So I predict that new dumpling joint ShanDong MaMa will do well, as they have the distinction of (a) making all their products fresh on premises every day; and (b) receiving the approval of my (Chinese) parents who declared their dumplings some of the […]

David’s Restaurant Christmas Giveaway!

It’s only 2 weeks till Christmas, how did the year go so fast??? To help you celebrate the Christmas season one of my favourite Chinese restaurants David’s (see several of my previous posts here) have created some special dishes such as Drunken Whole King Prawns, Shanghai steamed ginger Tsingtao whole crab and their unique take on the […]

HOT: David’s Restaurant Weekend Yum Cha, 4 Cecil Place, Prahran

David’s Restaurant has previously been voted one of Melbourne’s favourite yum cha destinations. They’ve recently revamped their interior design and menu to incorporate a more homely, country Shanghai style. That translates to a beautiful space awash with white and light (a modern interpretation of a Shanghaiese river cottage) accompanied by a menu of family favourites. The relaxed […]
