Yum Cha at Shark's Fin

Dubbed as "the best chinese restaurant in melbourne" (according to their site...!), Shark's Fin Restaurant offers a Cantonese menu and yum cha is available daily. Those who have not heard about yum cha before... have been missing a lot, or actually doing it without knowing it!

Yum Cha directly translates to "drink tea", which is what one does while partaking various dim sums, offered around by the waiters or waitresses as they push trolleys piled with bamboo steamers, plates of crispy squid or sticky rice or stuffed oysters, together with the rest of hakkao, pork siu mai, an assortment of dim sums, really. Dessert is served similarly, with the all time favorite mango pudding served with milk, or egg custard and sesame balls, among others - the selection is so diverse.

Bookings are essential as the place can be packed especially on weekends - yes, all three floors of their Chinatown establishment.

You can find their site here.


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
