Who could say no especially when you have a craving?
The Dim Sum culture appears to be slightly different from Melbourne. Whilst you won't see many dim sum places in Melbourne CBD opening before 12pm, Landmark open its doors at 10am and with a queue before that.
It would be quite hard to not find it in Sunnybank Plaza.
Since we were here earlier, i found this VIP list rather amusing. Thankfully no Chinese had their pictures taken, if not i would have been ashamed. Have you ever left a restaurant without paying the bill?
The Squid doesn't come with Salt and Pepper and instead comes in a more sinful manner; salted egg yolk. Nevertheless, if you can only order one fried item, it should be this.
The system is a mix of self service and trolley pushing. The steamed dim sum is situated in a corner of the restaurant and you pile them on your tray DIY style while some of the other fried dishes and the miscellaneous like the cheong fun are carted around for you to look at and take. Apart from the usual fare of Har Gow and Siu Mai, you get beef tendons and tripes too, stuffed eggplant and other forms of dumplings with different fillings. Coming in a big group is probably the only way to try everything.
The Polo Bun had the crunchy sweet top and a custard filling too. If only it can be a staple breakfast diet, life would be perfect, along with many other things of course.
If you were wondering, if that was it, the question is no but the camera was sitting snuggly in the bag as dumplings can only look so different. Overall an enjoyable meal of "yum cha" as we call it in Australia and the best part of eating with a huge group, the bill was AUD 16 per pax. With a basket ranging from AUD 3-6, it could easily be AUD 25 per pax if the Wife and I had gone.
