Thank you Monique. Some great dumplings and conversation. Also, some interesting Melbourne history thrown in. We were unlucky to have picked a really hot evening and a few of the places dont have air conditioning. But the dumplings made up for it. And I look forward to going back for more!

Uh, yes, a DUMPLING tour? What more info do you need? I've done a lot of food tours and this one was among the most unique. Very well-run, would do it again and would absolutely recommend.

I loved this tour and Monqiue was a fabulous guide. This tour takes you to four different restaurants to taste different types of dumplings eg: Shanghai province and Japanese NB: remember to wear stretchy pants.
