Whether it’s stuffed with beef, pork, shiitake mushrooms, tofu, fennel or leeks, they are so delicious that they can’t stop at all~ In China, we have to eat dumplings during the winter solstice, so winter in Melbourne is here, so everyone is ready to move. What? I will take stock of delicious dumpling restaurants in Melbourne!


Mr Huang Jin

Located in the square of Rialto Towers, Mr Huang Jin is wedged into a tall glass curtain wall on one side of the building. It is bright and spacious. There are two floors! This casual Taiwanese snack is crowded with busy office workers working in the city every day, especially during lunch hours! Bamboo basket steamed dumplings and Taiwanese tapas are very popular! The mustard chili noodles and pork dumplings are my favorite! The soup is very rich, and the aroma in it overflows just after a bite! Dip it in vinegar and soy sauce, it's even more special!

The traditional recipe from Yantai, Shandong, China is used~ As we all know, Shandong’s seafood is very famous, and dumplings filled with fish meat are even more popular. Mackerel is mixed with leeks, coriander, ginger, and green onions as dumpling fillings, which is extremely delicious.
