“I rate xiao long bao by the cone of silence they create: if the world goes quiet while the dumpling goes down then they're good. These turned Melbourne to a whisper.”

"It’s Saturday night and you’re on the hunt for delicious dumplings; those morsels of pork and chives wrapped in a starch pastry that falls apart as you take the first bite..”
