Hidden away up Little Bourke is this small restaurant, nothing special looking about it. That is, until you try the dumplings.
There’s usually a little line outside, we were lucky there weren’t many small groups so out little table for two came up quickly.
I’d heard rumours they were good but I had no idea how true they were!
We started with pan fried pork dumplings, followed by Shanghai street noodles and Xaio Long Bao (steamed) – all were delicious.
They were all huge servings and about $9 a plate. We couldn’t even eat half of it.
My favourite was the pan fried dumplings, absolute perfection. I eat a lot of dumplings, I’d know.
Worth the wait.

Make sure you do, Lena! Highly recommend 🙂
I love dumplings and getting them in Shanghai would make them even better. Yummy!
Sooo good! 🙂
Such a good find. We went a few weeks ago for lunch on a Friday and only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. I reckon it’s better than Hutong in Chinatown – and way easier to get a seat!
Wow, I’m so jealous. Now I’m super starving for some street food!
Haha my bad! Hope you curbed the craving! 🙂
I went home last night and whipped up some frozen dumplings and shumai!
