As soon as we think we've got a hold on HuTong's growing dumpling empire, the Chinese restaurant gurus go and open yet another dumpling hotspot in Melbourne. From their chilli wontons that we could eat by the bucket-load, to juicy prawn dumplings, to the perfectly steamed xiao long bao, this is one eatery that caters to just about every dim sum desire there is!
The restaurant itself is tucked beside The Cullen Art Series Hotel, making it the perfect late-night drop-in for hungry travellers who fancy sampling some of Melbourne's best Chinese food. With a menu that includes Sechuan style dishes, Shanghai hotpots and noodles galore, you'll be hard pushed to find a better variety of traditional dishes on the southside.
Whether you're stopping by for a mid-week lunch, looking to book a multi-course dumpling feast, or simply need a hearty feed before hitting the neighbouring bars and clubs, HuTong Peking Duck & Dumpling Restaurant guarantees full mbellies and happy tastebuds. Arrive hungry—you're going to need that stomach space!
