Plates of dumplings

Crown Melbourne’s upmarket Chinese restaurant has launched a weekday yum cha special. For a cool $50, you get three dimsum dishes (offerings include king crab crystal dumplings and scallop siu mai) plus a noodle or congee dish and a drink. It’s hardly cheap but the dim sum are finely made and plump with seafood - these aren’t the kind of dumplings you drown in vinegar and scoff down before the lunch hour’s up.
