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

Dumplings, dumplings, dumplings – Melburnians just can’t get enough of them.

There’s market stalls, music, food and festivities and the festival gets bigger and better every year (this is its third year). Here are my highlights: Grab some charcuterie, cheese and a baguette […]
