Nong Tang Noodle House, Melbourne

Nong Tang Noodle House had their First Birthday and boy oh boy did they do an amazing launch. We were in for a feast, a 10 course feast that is. Located in the mid-city arcade, it’s a very cosy eatery so if you do come here, make sure you make a reservation. Back to the food, first up, the west-lake veggie soup. This soup was quite thick and a touch on the bland side.

Drumplings, Melbourne

I have heard so many good things about this cheeseburger dumplings at drumplings so of course I had to go and try it. We visited on a Tuesday at 5pm (yep, we’re like old grannies that loves to eat early) and there’s already quite a few tables that were reserved. Luckily for us, we were there early so we snagged a table. The staff were friendly and welcoming once walking in and boy was it hot in there. It reminded us of being on a tropical island and the interior just makes me feel oh so happy.

Block 7 Dumplings, Ringwood – Eastland Shopping Centre

Whenever I have Xiao Long Bao cravings I always head to Forest Hill. However, I found out that there’s a new dumpling place in Eastland that also serves XLB AND it’s closer to home. So I convinced (by convinced I kinda made him) Mr D to take me on a dumpling date. It’s located near the cinemas and right opposite to Gami and there were plenty of seats (I guess it’s because we went in midday in the middle of the week). The ordering process is so easy, there’s a clipboard on your table, you fill in what you want and BAM hand it over to the staff and they’ll bring the food out to you. So no required interaction at all.

Supper Inn, Melbourne

Mumsy and Daddy Bear wanted to take us out for midnight congee so they took us to their hangout joint Supper Inn. Supper Inn has been around FOREVER and they are known to serve up midnight congee and are open into the wee hours of the morning. When we arrived, the restaurant was 3/4 full and luckily we didn’t need to wait to get a seat. Located in an alley way, it may seem dodgy but it is well known for those who are peckish and do not want maccas or kebabs. We got the menu and of course mumsy and daddy bear got congee.

The congee was well congee. The parents found it to be exactly like how it use to be, average. It was soupy and needed salt and pepper added to it.
