Dragon Boat Palace, Melbourne

Before he was Lord Mayor of Melbourne and World Mayor of 2006, John So was in the restaurant game. So what better place for Yum Cha than the Mayor's own Dragon Boat Palace, 149 Lonsdale St, Melbourne, +61 3 9639 0888. The food wasn't bad and there wasn't a cockroach in sight.


The food wasn't that flash either. Some of the dumplings were a bit gluggy, and there were some bland and pointless tofu bits that I could have done without (eg, pale yellow blobs that looked like aged mayonnaise). But the pork was a highlight, especially my old favorite, the steamed BBQ pork bun. The perfect way to celebrate the year of the golden pig. Oink.

Crikey an egg free breakfast...

...or did you have some black thousand year old eggs in the mix?

It reminds me of my gilded youth in Hong Kong - stumbling out of night clubs and 5.30am to hit the warm embrace of the Dim Sum Dolly's Trollies, surrounded by crusty old men slurping their toothless mouths over unctuous, slippery morsels...aah!
