NileGuide Expert tip:
Remember the green tea is free.
Tucked down a gritty alley, in a tiny shop, is an institution that should be placed on the must taste list. Hugely popular with Asian students living in Melbourne, as the name suggests this place does one thing very well…dumplings. Service can be erratic, but that is due to the hectic nature of the place, as staff rush around trying to sit the many people as they can, some who line up out into the street. The surrounds are very modest, but people don't come for the ambience, rather to embrace the little pouches of steamed or fried goodness. The shrimp and pork fried dumplings are the best and don't forget to have a free green tea.
