Some of Melbourne's best Chinese restaurants are gathering for a dumpling celebration
Make your way to Chinatown's brightest walkway, 206 Bourke Street, for Melbourne's second annual dumpling festival. The event brings Chinese restaurants Tim Ho Wan, China Red, China Chilli and Dragon Boat back together for round two.
The restaurants will be creating 50 dumpling varieties to try, delicious dumpling and beer pairings and running dumpling-making demonstratoins, Chinese calligraphy workshops and live entertainment. Plus there will be the Double Happiness Bubble Tea Cocktail Bar and the Brooklyn Brewery Beer Garden for a little boozy accompaniment.
There will be free green tea ice cream, free cocktails and beers when you order takeaway dumplings on the night, and the festival is also running fortune cookie giveaway with prizes and the chance to win free dumplings for a year.
