The place: South Melbourne Market Dim Sims.
The dish: Steamed chicken dim sims.
The verdict: Not your average dim sim.
Once exclusively located at the South Melbourne Market (as the name suggests), this vendor has now popped up in Elizabeth Street and here in the Emporium cafe court.
The simple menu features steamed or fried dim sims, springrolls, potato cakes and soft drink. I’ve had their steamed chicken dim sims before, so I knew exactly what to expect when I ordered my two, with a squirt of soy sauce.
Larger than the average dim sim and tastier too, these bad boys didn’t disappoint. They are a little messy to eat, so it’s best to come prepared with lots of napkins.
While dim sims may not be your completest of meals, it’s certainly a satisfying lunch. And for $2.50 each, it’s an inexpensive one too.
