Feast on 25 different dumplings in South Yarra

We know Melbourne is sick for a dumpling, which is why the Oriental Teahouse's first Dumpling Degustation went bananas. Happily for anyone who missed out last time, they're hosting another dumpling party from their Chapel Street location. This is not a drill - you can eat 25 different dumplings, including five new options.

For traditionalists the soft xiao long bao (the soupy ones) and pan-fried pork and chive options are on the menu. Prefer your dumplings with a side of adventure? Flavours like wild mushroom and lobster, black bean and Angus beef, flamethrower pulled-pork, and green curry lamb will shake up your usual order. Or maybe the football shaped dumpling (pork, shrimp, dried shiitake mushroom and bamboo encased in a crisp bacon and sesame top) will be your favourite?

After dinner, head upstairs to digest over drinks at the 1930’s Shanghai themed bar, Zhou Zhou. But first, book those tickets. You don't want to be the kid holding the empty steamer basket.
